AMC Boston Family Outings - NH Camping/Hiking Weekend w/Parents and Teens/Young Adults

Family Date: Fri July 24, 2020 - Sun July 26, 2020


Appalachian Mountain Club ("AMC") is pleased to be able to reopen some of its operations in accordance with state regulations. In connection with re-opening, AMC is requiring all volunteers and participants to read the following warning and sign the liability waiver in order to be present at AMC activities.

With that in mind, we would like you to join us Friday July 24th thru July 26th in the White Mountain National Forest in NH. Back to basics; Camping and Hiking

Come join us with one or both parents on a fun camping/hiking weekend in the NH White Mountain National Forest. Our "Fun and Safe Adventure" will be conducted under the current AMC Phase II guidelines and the "up to date" stay at home advisories in MA and NH. Keeping "Socially Distanced" we will setup a tent base camp, bring your own stove and cooking gear, make your meals, hike two days and enjoy one of New Hampshire's scenic peaks or maybe a waterfall.

Please read the AMC guidelines. We are limited to a maximum of 10 people (including leaders), but will most likely be a group of 6 to help facilitate "Social Distancing" both camping and hiking.

Our basecamp will be three multi-tent sites located in the Sugarloaf II Campground

The campground is located off Rt. 302 and Zealand Road just outside of Twin Mountain. (See below for more specific directions)

Leaders are planning a challenging (but very doable) Saturday hike up to Mt Crawford (approximately 5.3 miles and 2100 ft. elevation gain). One of the best views of the Presidential Range and lunch on Mt. Crawford, make up the highlights of the hike. Hikes could change due to trail crowding, weather, group dynamics, or circumstances outside leader control.

Sunday, after breakfast and breaking down camp we will hike from the campground to Middle and North Sugarloaf Mtns. (approximately 3.5 miles, 1100 ft. elev. gain).

Weekend Cost: $25 per person (not including personal expenses; i.e. food, gas, tolls, $5 extra car per camp site )

Hike Leader: Michael Wainer, (617) 549-2731, Stoneham, MA,
Co-Leader: Dave Beck (781) 321-8321,

Per AMC Phase II guidelines; all participants and leaders MUST bring and their own face coverings (masks), hand sanitizer (with 60% or greater alcohol content), water, food and snacks for all three days. All participants MUST register online via Activities Database (ActDb).

** Trip can be cancelled at anytime if AMC, MA or NH guidelines change ***
