Overview

Spend a week in beautiful Crawford Notch, in the heart of New Hampshire's White Mountains, giving back to the nearby trails, and enjoying the company of fellow stewards over meals at AMC's Highland Center Lodge! Volunteer Trail Work: The crew will be working on a section of trail that is near AMC's Higland Center, with less than 2 miles to hike to the project site each day. If needed, the crew will be driven by van to a nearby trailhead. The project may involve installing drainage structures, building rock steps, constructing bog bridges, restoring impacted areas, or other trail maintenance projects. Crews work rain or shine. While the hike and work can be strenuous, these crews are designed to engage volunteers with no prior trail volunteer experience. Trained leaders will guide the group throughout the week. Recreation Day: This crew includes an unguided mid-week recreation day, when participants are welcome to choose their own adventure. Highland Center staff can provide hiking or sight-seeing recommendations - there's so much to do with Crawford Notch as your base camp! Accommodations: The crew will be staying in AMC's Shapleigh Bunkhouse, adjacent to the Highland Center. For more information, visit https://www.outdoors.org/lodging-camping/lodges/highland/Shapleigh-Bunkhouse. Breakfast and dinner are served in the Highland Center's dining room from Sunday night through Friday morning, and trail lunches are provided each day. A complete packing list will be provided after registration. * Please note that Friday night lodging is not included - if you would like to stay an additional night after the conclusion of the Volunteer Vacation, please call 603-466-2727 to inquire about availability.
