Overview

Expand your backpacking/camping experience into winter. You know you've wanted to try it. Meet Saturday morning and backpack only 1.5 to 2 mi., set up camp, then day hike in the Mt. Washington State Forest of SW Massachusetts. Day hike possibilities: Brace Mtn. (8 mi. RT) and Alander Mtn. (3 mi. RT). Our campsite will have a picnic table, fire ring, food vault and outhouse. Participants do not need winter backpacking experience, but should have winter day hiking experience. Pack sleds can be used. Contact leader if you want to discuss your readiness and/or gear. If you are a member of Facebook, a great way to keep up to date on new trips is by joining our backpackers group. See the link below:
