YM Fall Foliage Bonds Backpack

Trip dates: Saturday, October 6, 2018 12:00 AM to Sunday, October 7, 2018 12:00 AM

Join AMC Young Members (20s and 30s) for a 1-night backpack trip to the Twins (North Twin and South Twin) and Bonds (West Bond, Mount Bond, and Bondcliff) in the heart of the Pemigewasset Wilderness with (hopefully) excellent fall foliage. On Saturday we'll go up the Zealand Trail, hopping onto the Twinway to summit Guyot, then turning onto Bondcliff Trail to get to Guyot Campsite, where we'll set up camp. We'll then head over to the Bonds to enjoy the views before heading back to Guyot for the night. In the morning we'll head to South Twin, passing North Twin on our way down the North Twin Trail. You should expect great views, possible winds, and potentially chilly (freezing) temperatures. This is a fairly demanding trip (20+ miles with 5300 ft elevation gain), so you must be in good condition and a reasonably self-sufficient backpacker, with experience doing significant elevation gain with a full pack. Participants are responsible for own food. Sharing of tents and stoves is likely. Limited to 6.
