Join us for a beginner, relaxed pace hike in the Blue Hills to start your day. We will hike the rolling hills and simply enjoy being in nature with like-minded outdoor enthusiasts.

Family Foliage Weekend Fun in the Whites: Highland Center and Mizpah Springs Hut

Family Date: Fri October 2, 2020 - Sun October 4, 2020

Spend the weekend in the White Mountains of New Hampshire enjoying the foliage, hiking two 4000 footers, and eating well. The first night will be spent at the AMC's premier lodge, the Highland Center in Crawford Notch. After breakfast we will hear up to the Mizpah Springs Hut, which is nestled in a col between two 4,000-foot peaks. Mizpah Spring Hut is just a short distance from the fabled Crawford Path. The trail is 2.6 miles to the hut, with a gradual elevation gain of 1,900 feet through a boreal forest. Once we reach the hut we will have lunch, and then for those who want to do some more hiking, we will head out to Mount Pierce. In the morning we will head over to Mount Jackson and then back to the cars via the Webster Jackson trail. Children and adults must be able to hike 3-4 miles over rugged terrain and carry two day's worth of clothing, snacks, water and lunches. Cost includes lodging at the Highland Center in shared bunk rooms, dinner Friday and breakfast Saturday at the Highland Center, shared bunk room lodging at the Mizpah Springs Hut Saturday night, along with dinner and breakfast at the hut. Does not include lunches or snacks.

Mount Shaw's Fall Colors

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Sat October 3, 2020

Mount Shaw is a gem on the 52 WAV list as the highest peak in the Ossipee Range at 2,990 ft with incredible views of Lake Winnipesaukee to the south and the Sandwich Range to the north! This region is scheduled to be in or near peak foliage so be ready to take some great photos during our 7.7-mile loop in the woods maintained by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust. We will summit Mt. Shaw directly and descend over Black Snout and Tate Mountain, gaining 2,450' of elevation. The Shaw summit is shared by snowmobiles in the winter and therefore widely accessible. We plan on maintaining a moderate pace. With stops for views and lunch, you should plan on 6+ hours.

Hike Wildcats

Join us for a hike of Wildcat Ridge and summit its 5 peaks named A, B, C, D and E.

Our plan, however, is to summit all 5 peaks and, weather permitting, experience fantastic views of the northern Presidentials from the ridge as well as views of Carter Dome Mountain, Carter Notch Hut and the Carter Lakes from Wildcat A. This hike is approximate 9 miles with 3,200' of elevation gain.
