Camping Weekend with Northern Presidents (Madison, Adams) with Boston YM

Trip dates: Friday, August 3, 2018 12:00 AM to Sunday, August 5, 2018 12:00 AM

Looking to hike a few Presidentials this summer but don't want to do a full traverse in a day? Craving some camping time? Join AMC Boston young members for a weekend of camping and hiking through some of the highest peaks in New Hampshire.
We have two nights booked at a campground in the Crawford Notch region, gathering on Friday night for campfire snacks (dinner will not be provided the first night).
Saturday we will hike to Mt. Madison and Adams in a 8.5-mile loop, approx. 4,206 elevation gain, returning to the campground for a second night with dinner cooked over the campfire.
Sunday we will plan a shorter hike in the area, possibly to a waterfall to swim. Both hikes will be at a fun, leisurely pace with plenty of stops for photos, water breaks, and snacks, but be advised, this is a hike for Intermediate/ Advanced hikers with previous experience hiking in the White Mountains or similar terrain/ mileage/ elevation.
Cost for the trip is $45 for members, $50 for non-members, which includes Saturday dinner, and two breakfasts, snacks, campground fees and firewood. Participants should bring lunches for both days.

Directions:

Will provide ahead of hike.
