Family AMC Lonesome Lake Hut Overnight, Franconia Notch, NH

Trip dates: Saturday, August 25, 2018 10:00 AM to Sunday, August 26, 2018 12:00 PM

Join us for a fun overnight at family-friendly Lonesome Lake hut. This is the perfect trip for parents/guardians/grandparents! We hike 1.6 miles to the hut (and gain 1000' vertical feet) at a kid friendly pace (~1-1.5 miles/hr); the route crosses 2 bridges and features a few mild rock scrambles, and the moderate incline is moderated by switchbacks. We will stop along the way for snacks, a look at nature and possibly for lunch by the lake. Once at the hut, you will have free time to enjoy a swim and explore. Sunday, we will hike around the lake and back to our cars. Hot mountain dinner and breakfast prepared by the hut crew included. Accommodations include a bunk w/pillow and 3 wool blankets (bunk rooms are co-ed and accommodate 4-7 people).

$139/adult includes one free kid (age 12 and under). Additional kids $126/youth (13 - 17); $74/child (3 - 12). Non-AMC member prices $167/adult; $134/youth; $88/child. Tax is additional. Contact Liz Little at lizklittle@gmail.com with questions.
