AMC Boston 2018 Spring Hiking Program

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Tue April 10, 2018 - Tue May 8, 2018

Tuesdays, April 10, 17, 24, May 1st, and 8th. Ever wanted to try hiking or backpacking and didn't know where to get started? Are you rusty and want to brush up on your knowledge and skills? Do you want to get involved with our organized hikes and meet other hikers? Then the 3-Season Spring Hiking Program (SHP) is for you! This interactive course consists of 5 instructional sessions to introduce the basics of spring, summer and fall day hiking and backpacking in New England. The instruction topics for each of the 5 evenings are different and include: clothing, footwear, heat management, nutrition, essential gear, backcountry stewardship and more! During the program participants are also given a choice of day hikes, lodge based trips and backpacks that are exclusive to the program to practice their new skills. These trips are an opportunity for participants to get outside with experienced AMC leaders and practice what they have learned in the classroom sessions. Though many of these trips have a particular mountain as an objective, the emphasis is on learning and reinforcement of the classroom discussions. Additional charges apply to some trips. [Unfortunately we cannot accommodate dogs, except service dogs, on any program trip.]
Program participants will get the most out of the program by going on as many trips as possible. Day hikes and weekend events will be offered starting the first Saturday after the program begins and run through the summer. The Cardigan Lodge Weekend (May 18-20) and the Beginner Backpacking Trip (June 1-3) are capstone trips for this program. Mark your calendars to attend either of these fun filled weekends! Individual trip registration will open after the first classroom session on April 10th. Advanced registration for the program is required. Reserve your spot now as the class fills quickly. The SHP takes place on 5 nights from 6:30-8:30pm at the First Baptist Church of Medford, 29 Oakland Street, Medford, MA. The dates are Tuesdays April 10th, April 17th, April 24th, May 1st and May 8th. Class sessions are located close to I-93 and municipal parking in Medford, as well as the 94, 95, 96, 101, 134 and 326 (express) MBTA bus lines. If you have general questions about our SHP program, please contact the program organizer, Casey Ajalat. With questions about registration, please contact SHP registrar, Chris McCarron.

Show & Go Conditioning Hike Series in Middlesex Fells

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Thu April 26, 2018

Need to break in some new boots or other gear? Has it been a while since you had a pack on your back? Want to see where your fitness level is at going into Spring/Summer hiking?

Join the leaders for this conditioning hike series in Middlesex Fells. Meet at the eastern edge of the Cross Fells Trail (Gate 58) at 6PM (directions below). We'll hike variations of the Rock Circuit and surrounding trails in the eastern section of the Fells. We'll plan to hike until dark (bring a headlamp) at a moderate pace to get our heart rates up.

Never explored the eastern part of the Fells? It boasts a waterfall (yes a waterfall in the Fells), nice up-and-down rock scrambles for stretching legs and testing boot grip, fantastic views of Boston, and the remains of the 1899 MIT Geodetic Observatory. It's a hidden gem with variable terrain accessible by public transit.

These are 'show and go' hikes that do not require registration. That said, help us manage hike size expectations and register for the hike if you can. This is part of a 5-hike series (Thurs April 26, Weds May 2, Thurs May 10, Thurs May 17, Thurs May 24). Show up for one or multiple hikes in the series. Your choice.

You will be asked to sign an AMC Waiver at the start of the hike. You can preview the waiver at: https://www.outdoors.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Volunteer-Led-Activi...

Gear: At a minimum, bring a pack that can fit an extra layer, hat & gloves (it'll get chillier as the sun sets), headlamp (required as we'll be chasing the sun out of the Fells), hiking boots, water and snacks. We'll hike rain or shine, so don't forget your rain gear. Better to test your rain gear locally than wait for a storm in the Whites. You may choose to carry a larger/heavier pack with your full gear for a spring/summer hike for a more rigorous workout. Packs can easily be made heavier with extra water.

Mt Jefferson via Castle Trail

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Sat April 28, 2018

Join us for this early spring hike to the 5,716 foot summit of Mt. Jefferson by the Castle Trail. We will hike at a moderate pace, ascend 4,300 feet and cover 10 miles round trip in about 8 hours. The trail above treeline is rocky and somewhat steep including the Castles which are a series of rock towers that we will scramble around or over as we hike the ridge. Views from the trail are stunning. If you have above treeline experience and like a bit of a scramble, this is a great opportunity to end your winter hibernation and get back into the mountains. Since weather in late April is a gamble, come prepared with microspikes, rain gear, and warm clothing.

Spring Hike to Mt. Garfield

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Sat May 12, 2018

This spring hike to Mt. Garfield (4,500') offers wonderful views of the surrounding Pemigewasset Wilderness on a clear day. The hike entails approximately 12.4 miles (which includes a short road walk) and approximately 3,000 feet of elevation gain. Mt. Lafayette, Mt. Liberty, the Bonds and Owl's Head and several other four thousand footers can be seen from its summit. This is a shoulder-season hike, so hikers should expect varied conditions, include the possibility of winter-like conditions, particularly at the higher elevations. Prior winter hiking experience is strongly suggested. Given the variety of shoulder season conditions, participants should expect a mix of mud, water, snow, and ice, with widely ranging temperatures between the lower and higher elevations so be prepared to bring winter gear. We will monitor the weather and trail conditions and make decisions as to what is needed closer to the date of the hike. Shoulder season tends to include icy conditions due to melting and refreezing cycles, so hiking poles are recommended.

Hiking weekend at the (Low) Harvard Cabin

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Fri June 1, 2018 - Sun June 3, 2018

This is a joint Boston H/B and SE Mass chapter trip. Using the historic Harvard Cabin (the low one, on Rt. 16) as our base, we will set out on hikes in the Pinkham Notch or nearby area. 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 will be determined Friday night depending on leaders and participants interests, latest weather/trail conditions reports, and participants abilities. On Saturday, we will likely offer two options if the group fills: one moderate/easier 4,000 footer mountain and one moderate/more strenuous 4,000 footer. 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). Boston H/B leaders: Erika Bloom and Claudine Kos. SE Mass leader: Leslie Carson. SE Mass coleader; Ken Carson. For those on the Boston REGI system, please register through REGI. For those in SEM not on REGI, please contact Erika Bloom (email preferred).

Mount Carrigain

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Sat June 2, 2018

Weighing in at an even 4,700 feet, Mt Carrigain is the 13th highest of the NH 4,000 Footers. On this trip, we'll be doing a 10-mile out and back, and will enjoy lunch at the summit's fire tower, where sweeping 360-degree views of the Pemigewasset Wilderness will be available, assuming our pre-hike invocations to the weather gods work well. The first couple miles lull you into a feeling of ease and contentment that only a casual ramble in the woods can provide. However, the climb to the summit is steep and challenging, so you should be familiar with rough terrain and steep pitches...in other words, you should relish in the joys that hiking in the White Mountains offers. Details will be sent to approved attendees in advance.
