Approximately 4 miles in with little elevation gain. This Wildlands Trust property encompasses 230 acres of open field and woods running along the Taunton River. It includes over a mile of pristine river frontage along one of the most scenic and undisturbed stretches of the entire Taunton River, expansive open fields, mixed pine/oak woodlands, vernal pools, and habitat for several rare species, including eastern box turtle. Expect to see nesting Bobolinks and swallows over the fields. The preserve can be wet and buggy so insect repellent may be necessary. We will ask for proof of Covid vaccination or a negative PCR test result within 72 hours prior to the hike. Weather: Thunderstorms will delay, cancel or shorten trips. Also extreme winds. Rain? That's why you bring a raincoat. We won't cancel because of rain. So, come and explore with us! It is always fun to 'take a walk in the woods'.

The Ames Shovel Company was a rather successful enterprise in the 1800s, making the Ames some of the richest folks around, and we will talk about some of that history on these hikes. Borderland was also used in several films over the past few years, For instance the interior shots for Knives Out were filmed there. Shutter Island used the lodge on the lake.

Alewife-Charlestown Bike Loop

Date: Thursday, June 30 - Thursday, June 30

Come enjoy a 19 mile mostly bike path tour along the Charles from Alewife to Charlestown and back. A highlight will be the new-ish bike bridge from Charlestown to Cambridge. There are some surface roads in West Cambridge to access the Charles. Be aware this is an urban ride and though we are mostly on bike paths, there are many crossings and expect heavy vehicle, bike, and pedestrian traffic. Following the rules of the road is a must for safety. Due to traffic, we will plan on an overall speed of approx. 10-12 mph overall speed with no formal rest stops. To keep the group well guided and sort of together thought the many turns and crossings, we will ask riders to participate in the "human arrow" method (more detail at the pre-ride brief). Helmets required, bright, highly visible clothing and blinky lights are highly recommended. This ride is show and go, riders will be accepted by the leaders without any follow-up or screening once you register in the AMC System.

Dry River Wilderness to Eisenhower and Pierce

Date: Saturday, July 2

Join us for a day hike to the summits of Mt Eisenhower (4760') and Mt Pierce (4,310') via the Dry River Wilderness. For peak-baggers and hikers "tracing" the lesser-traveled trails of the White Mountains alike, this trip will be a rewarding journey through boulder-fields in the Dry River Wilderness Area up the southeast side of Eisenhower. We will have breathtaking views from the summits and will enjoy a rest and water break at Mizpah Spring Hut after summiting Pierce. This hike is extremely difficult in terms of the distance (15.75) Miles, the elevation gain (4332') and the above tree-line summit. Please be an experienced hiker in good physical condition with recent comparable trips. We will hike to the summit with slightly faster than moderate pace. Due to the length and route of the trip, participants should be available to be out until twilight and should be prepared with headlamps. This is a group activity and the group will be kept together for safety. Participants will be expected to hike on-trail in accordance with leave-no-trace principles. To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out.

SHP: Welch Dickey Revisited (Level 1)

Date: Sunday, July 10

This trip is part of the Boston Chapter Spring Hiking Program (SHP) and is only open to enrolled participants of that program. This loop trail affords excellent views for a modest effort, with nearly 2 miles of partly open walking at relatively low elevations. On the south ledges of Welch Mountain it runs through the southernmost of one of the few stands of jack pine (Pinus banksiana) that occur in New Hampshire. This is a tree that commonly occurs much farther north and benefits from fires because it releases its seeds most readily after its cones have been scorched (when, presumably, most of its competitors have been killed by the fire). The section that ascends Welch Mountain is often one of the first trails to be clear of snow in spring. However, some of the ledges provide mildly challenging rock scrambles and may be slippery when wet so they must be ascended with caution. Mileage and elevation gain: 4.4 miles distance and about a 1650 foot elevation gain. This hike will be at moderate pace, and we may take several breaks since it is an instructional hike part of the Spring Hike Program (SHP). To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out.

Note: The intent is to walk 'every' week (that the park is open!) So, a hurricane or blizzard might cancel the walk, however a little rain? That's why we own raincoats! :-) If in doubt, email me, or check the online listing, as I will change the status to "cancelled" if I will not be there. Borderland is a former Ames estate. The Ames Shovel Company was a rather successful enterprise in the 1800s, making the Ames some of the richest folks around, and we will talk about some of that history on these hikes. Borderland was also used in several films over the past few years, For instance the interior shots for Knives Out were filmed there. Shutter Island used the lodge on the lake. The 2016 version of Ghost Busters was another. Then there is Blanche and women's suffrage, Oakes and Orchids. Plus other AMC hikes.

As this trip is part of an instructional program, expect the group to move at a pace that could be slower than what might be the most ideal for you. The trip leaders would gladly answer any questions you might have on and off the trails. You will certainly receive ample opportunity to practice the skills you have been learning in the SHP. To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out.

SHP: Liberty (Level 3)

Date: Sunday, August 7

This trip is part of the Boston Chapter Spring Hiking Program (SHP) and is only open to enrolled participants of that program. Join the leaders for a 6.4 mile hike to Mt. Liberty - part of the picturesque Franconia Ridge. The route to the summit includes a section of the Appalachian trail and passes the Liberty Springs tent-site. Weather permitting, we will be treated to 360 degree views of the Whites, Vermont and southern Maine from the summit. The climb to Mt. Liberty is rather steep in places and the summit (at 4,459 feet) is exposed. If the group chooses, and conditions permit, we can attempt to travel along the ridge to Mt. Flume (4,328 feet). This adds around 2.5 miles round trip. There is approximately 3300ft elevation gain/loss in the hike to Mt. Liberty. Flume adds 1000ft round trip. Expect to spend the whole day hiking. Considering the milage and elevation gain to Mt. Liberty, it is strongly recommended that you have hiked in the Whites (or similar) with consistent elevation gain prior to this trip. To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out.

Lake Champlain Bike Weekend 2022

Date: Friday, August 19 - Sunday, August 21

Join us for 3 days of biking in the beautiful Burlington, VT/Lake Champlain region. If the border is open, we will ride into Canada to enjoy lunch in the lovely village of Venise-en-Quebec. A valid passport or passport card is required for the trip to Canada. We will view landscapes of picturesque coastline, quaint island life, and rolling Vermont hills and mountains. Each day will offer at least 2 ride options: one a moderate, 12-13 pace averaging 23-44 miles and one advanced ride of 14+ with a range of 43-59 miles. Elevation gain will vary depending on the route. Friday's rides will begin in downtown Burlington, traveling across the Colchester Causeway and Bike Ferry to South Hero Island and a winery. Saturday we will either do a remote start north of Burlington and ride well into Canada, or do a loop from Burlington to Plattsburgh, NY, involving 3 ferry rides and a visit to Ausable Chasm, a scenic canyon. Sunday will offer a choice of rides south of Burlington along the edge of the Green Mountains, on a beautiful bike trail beside the Winooski River, or more hilly terrain. Most roads are pavement, but some scenic roads and bike paths are packed dirt or gravel. There is a non-refundable Registration Fee of $35.00 payable to AMC once registered for the trip. This fee will cover food for one Happy Hour as well as partially defray volunteer leader costs (such as navigation, lodging, setting up and leading rides, logistical support, and meal arrangements). Participants will self-pay for lodging, food, and any ferry services. Once you've registered, the hotel information will be e-mailed to you. Saturday and Sunday breakfast will be included in the hotel fee. Lodging will be approximately $215.00 per night (per room), which includes a 9% lodging tax. Rooms have either two double beds or one queen bed, so that cost can be shared with roommates. If people are seeking a roommate, we can try to help but are ultimately unable to guarantee this. Participants should consider this when booking a room. No hotel rooms should be booked until you are accepted on the trip. We welcome newcomers, so will hold 3 rooms for folks new to AMC or who have never participated in a weekend trip with AMC, until June 15th.

Family Fall Foliage Hut Trip in the White Mountains

Date: Friday, September 23 - Sunday, September 25

Join us on this family adventure in Crawford Notch during peak foliage in New Hampshire. The trip begins with an overnight at the Shapleigh Bunkhouse at the AMC's Highland Center on Friday and then an overnight at the full-service Zealand Hut on Saturday - no need to carry food except lunch and snacks. The 2.8 mile hike into the hut is easy and relatively flat, but filled with brooks, marshes, ponds, and waterfalls. An early start on Saturday will allow us plenty of time to explore the terrain and surrounding peaks when we arrive. After we reach the hut and have lunch we will venture up to Zeacliff for those with energy left for this steep ascent. From the sunny ledges, you have a sweeping vista over the eastern Pemigewasset Wilderness. Directly below you is Zealand Notch. On Sunday after breakfast we will pack up and make our way back to the trailhead. All ages of children are welcome, and while it is an easy hike to the hut, beginner hikers should probably not attempt Zeacliff as it is 1000 feet of elevation gain in less than 2 miles.
