New Hampshire, White Mountains,
This is a joint trip to Sub Sig Cabin in collaboration with the Sub Sig Outing Club and is limited to 10 AMC participants. This trip is open to Sub Sig members in addition to the 10 slots for AMC participants. Sub Sig cabin is located in Hart's Location, NH - about 10 miles south of the AMC Highland Center in Crawford Notch. The cabin has heat and electricity, a fully equipped kitchen, a cozy living/dining room, a 2 room sleeping area with mattresses, a 2 stall HEATED outhouse, and even a small library and assortment of games. The cabin does NOT have running water. Leaders and participants are expected to bring 2 gallons of water for personal use, along with sleeping bags and their own breakfasts and trail lunches. This weekend provides an opportunity to do a classic White Mountain 4000 footer hike with the convenience of a base camp near the trailhead. Our objectives, in order of priority, are: - Everyone has a safe and enjoyable weekend - set hiking goals according to the abilities and preparation of the group, but aim to climb some of the nearby 4,000' peaks, notably Willey (4,285'), Field (4,340') and Tom (4,051'). - Leave Sub Sig cabin in better condition than we found it. Sub Sig Cabin will be opened by the Leaders early Friday evening and all participants should aim to arrive by 9.00 pm having eaten dinner on the drive up. Dinner will be provided on the Saturday night, but participants will be responsible for their breakfasts and lunches on Saturday and Sunday as well as meal and cabin cleanup. On Saturday, we will try to hike up Mts. Willey and Field (and possibly Tom). Sunday we will try for a shorter hike (possibly Mt Crawford, Mt. Willard, or Arethusa Falls).
