Overview

Are you and your family ready for the fun and adventure of staying overnight at an AMC hut and summiting a New Hampshire 4000 footer? Spend two nights at the family-friendly Lonesome Lake hut, one of the most accessible in the Whites, and summit North Kinsman or Cannon on the second day. On Saturday 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, relax, or take an optional 0.8 mile hike around the lake before dinner. On Sunday we will have a leisurely-paced hike up to North Kinsman or Cannon as long as the snow has melted enough to make it viable. 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, happy hour, dinners and breakfasts included. Price $165/person. You are responsible for your lunch both days and trail snacks. Register at: https://regi.amcboston.org/event/2734 Questions-Stacia Biel, amcstacia@gmail.com 617-835-6532
