Overview

Join a crew of 6 and an AMC Trails staff instructor to spend a week at Zealand Falls Hut! Enjoy time with fellow stewards on the edge of the Pemigewassett Wilderness as you complete a project on scenic Zeacliff. SCHEDULE: The crew will begin with crew and camp orientation at 4pm Sunday at Camp Dodge Trails Training Center in Pinkham Notch, NH. On Monday, the crew will be taken to the Zealand Trailhead, where you will hike your tools, gear and yourself 2.2 rolling miles to Zealand Falls Hut. Crewmembers should be able to carry 12-18 lbs of tools on top of their gear to the hut. We'll drop off overnight gear, and continue to your worksite a mile further at Zeacliff, another 1.3 mi & 1150 ft. of elevation. We'll work Tuesday through Thursday, rain or shine. On Friday, we'll pack up and come back to Camp Dodge to clean tools and eat a final lunch before a 1pm departure. THE WORK: You will be constructing a new set of timber bog bridges just below Zeacliff. This work is fairly exposed to the elements, so remember warm clothes and rain gear. The hike and work can be strenuous, but no prior trail work experience is necessary. A trained AMC staff member will guide your group all week. ACCOMODATIONS: Camp Dodge, your arrival location, has co-ed adult bunkhouses with separate bathhouse. There is meeting and dining space in the indoor dining room and open air pavilion, with spectacular views of the Northern Presidential Mountains. Zealand Falls Hut is located at the north edge of the Pemigewasset Wilderness, near the town of Twin Mountain. The hut is a full-service AMC facility. It features co-ed adult bunkrooms. There is no shower or electricity available at the huts. Please note that all of our lodging is set up for shared accommodations, and occupancy will be modified in accordance with COVID-19 guidance at the time of the program. Please reach out with any questions or concerns. RECREATION: The hut is located next to beautiful Zealand Falls, with swimming holes accessible. Walk, swim or relax after your work day!
