This is a joint H/B (Hiking/Backpacking) and YM (Young Members) Boston chapter trip. Adults of all ages are welcome. Using the Harvard Cabin (the low one, on Rt. 16) as our base, we will set out on hikes in the Pinkham Notch or nearby areas of the White Mountains. This rustic cabin has an upstairs sleeping loft (sleeping bags/pads on a shared floor space), an outhouse, cold running water. Simple but fun! Exact hikes TBD depending on leaders and participants interests, latest weather/trail conditions reports, and participants abilities. On Saturday, we will offer two options if the group fills: one moderate/easier 4,000 footer mountain and one moderate/more strenuous 4,000 footer. One of the hikes will be led by an H/B leader and one will be led by a YM leader. On Sunday, we might go for another 4,000'er or often we opt for a shorter hike on the way home (perhaps a 52 With A View peak). You will help us as we prepare breakfast, a post-hike happy hour and dinner on Saturday and a breakfast on Sunday. Trip fee of $80/members and $85/non-members includes two breakfasts, one dinner, and happy hour snacks (planned and shopped for by the leaders, but prepared and cleaned up with the help of all participants). H/B leader: Erika Bloom. YM leader: Zoe Rath.
