Overview

Are you and your family ready for the fun and adventure of staying overnight at an AMC hut ... Overnight at the family-friendly Lonesome Lake hut, one of the most accessible in the Whites? We will hike 1.6 miles (and gain 1000' vertical feet) to the hut at a kid friendly pace. The route crosses 2 bridges and features a few mild rock scrambles, and the incline is moderated by switchbacks. Along the way, we will stop for snacks, look at nature and enjoy the views. Once at the hut, we have free time to explore, enjoy the breathtaking views of the Franconia Ridge across the pristine glacial lake, and relax. Come nightfall we might catch sunset. Sunday, we can take an optional 0.8 mile hike around the lake before returning to our cars. This is a great trip for families with children ages 5+ with some hiking experience. Lonesome Lake Hut is self-service this time of year. Accommodations include a bunk w/pillow (note - bunk rooms are co-ed). Participants help carry group gear and prepare group meals. Lodging, dinner, and breakfast included. Price $70/person. You are responsible for your lunch both days and trail snacks.
