Enjoy an early Halloween Celebration with a small group of families at AMC Lonesome Lake Hut the Saturday night before Halloween. This is a great trip for families with some experience hiking! We will hike 1.6 miles, (~1,000 ' elevation gain) to the hut at a kid friendly pace. We carry our sleeping bags, lunches and snacks, water and mountain gear. The group carries in supplies for dinner and breakfast and prepares it together in the hut kitchen. We have free time at the hut to explore, enjoy the breathtaking views of Franconia Ridge across the pristine glacial lake, and relax. The main dining room has a fire going in the evening. The bunk rooms are unheated and co-ed in order that we can keep families together, Sunday is an optional hike 0.8 miles around the lake before returning to our cars. This trip is best for ages 5+. Participants help carry group gear and prepare group meals. Price $75/person ($85 for non-members) includes lodging, dinner and breakfast. You are responsible for your lunch both days and trail snacks.
