Overview

Spend a long weekend at Mizpah Spring Hut, in the heart of New Hampshire's White Mountains, giving back to the trails and enjoying camaraderie with fellow trail stewards! Volunteer Trail Work: The crew will be working on a section of trail that is no more than a few miles from the hut. 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. The hike and work can be strenuous, and while no prior trail work experience is required, we recommend that volunteers are comfortable with hiking while carrying a moderately heavy pack (~30 Lbs.). Accommodations: We'll begin our first night at Shapleigh Studio, adjacent to AMC's Highlands Center in Crawford Notch. On Thursday, we will load packs and hike up to Mizpah Spring Hut, where the crew will be staying in shared bunk rooms at AMC's Mizpah Spring Hut (https://www.outdoors.org/lodging-camping/huts/mizpah). We will be at the hut during full-service season, meaning hut staff will prepare dinner and breakfast, and we'll pack a trail lunch each day. The hut offers composting toilets and running water, but no showers. The crew will pack out to the Highland Center on Sunday in time to eat lunch, unpack and clean up tools before an afternoon departure. * Please note that Sunday 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.
