I began leading bike trips for the AMC in 1990 and led for ten years before taking a break. When I became active with the Forty Plus Committee I decided to start leading again. I took a refresher leadership course and Wilderness First Aid and now I am certified as a cross-country ski and bike leader. I have met many wonderful leaders and trip participants and Forty Plus has become one of my most enjoyable retirement activities.

Join us for a weekend at Sub Sig Cabin in Hart's location in Crawford Notch, NH down the road from AMC Highland Center.

We will plan a hike choice both Saturday and Sunday as well as group breakfasts and a supper prepared by us all on Saturday evening. Trip is recommended for families with kids ages 7 and up.

Join Young Members leaders Samantha & Kanishk on a 9.2 mile traverse of the gorgeous Moats! We'll traverse the South, Middle and North Moat mountains. This is one of the most scenic hikes in the Whites, and despite being on the 52 With a View list (South Moat at 2770 ft and North Moat at 3196 ft), the trail is as difficult/varied as many 4,000 footers. If the weather is clear we can expect great vistas across the Saco River Valley including Mt Washington.

Ring in the New Year early with small group of AMC Families at Cardigan High Cabin for a night! Hike in two miles with 1450' elevation gain. The cabin is just under half a mile from the summit of Mt. Cardigan (3,155') w/great views. The cabin is toasty warm with the wood stove, but you will need winter gear and a warm sleeping bag regardless (winter will have set in :) Winter hiking is awesome with cool temperatures, no bugs and all the views (no leaves)!
