Walk on the Wildside: A Wild River Wilderness Weekend

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Sat May 25, 2019 - Mon May 27, 2019

Ever wondered what lies between the Carters and the Baldfaces? Join Jess and Nav for a Memorial Day weekend backpack in the Wild River Wilderness. Over three days, we'll plan to crisscross the Wild River Wildness twice, exploring some of the more remote landscape in the White Mountains. We'll plan to cover 7 to 13 miles each day, at a moderate pace, traversing birch-filled bottomlands and following scenic ridgelines, although few peaks are included in the planned itinerary. Participants should have experience with backpacking and be comfortable with stream crossings given the abundance of water in this area. Fee for the trip covers supper, although all will be expected to help carry group food and to contribute group gear (extra stoves, pots, etc) as able and as needed. Trip fee of $20 is refundable until group food has been purchased the weekend prior to the trip. Heavy rain may alter route plans. Group size limited to 10.

Taconics - Best of New England Backpack

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Sat July 20, 2019 - Sun July 21, 2019

Join us for a scenic 2 day/1 night backpack into the Taconics, located in the corner of northeastern Connecticut and southwestern Massachusetts. This hike will follow the AT and is listed as one of New England's best multi-day trips in "AMC's Best Backpacking in New England." An early start will be required on Saturday in order to cover the 11.6 miles and reach the preferred campsite (Race Brook Falls) at a reasonable time. On Sunday morning, we will break camp and hike 5.3 miles to the trailhead parking at Jug End. The total distance over the 2 days will be 16.9 miles with 4,600 feet of cumulative elevation gain over several peaks. Our route will feature stunning views and interesting geology - including the semi-precious Red Garnet stone which dots certain sections of the route; parts of the trail also feature abundant blueberries and one of the few old growth tree groves in existence - a tiny collection of hemlocks dating back to the early 1600s. This trip is appropriate for those who want to take a slower pace on long hikes over difficult terrain, enjoy the variety afforded by this trail, sleep under the stars and explore nature.
