Beautiful hiking and camping! Camp out two nights a total distance of 15 miles. Start with a gentle hike in on Seneca Creek Trail a few miles. Set up a base camp for the weekend and do a loop hike on Saturday. Gentle hike uphill on Sunday to starting point. Lots of waterfalls and stream crossings. Lots of time for swimming and relaxing. Some elevation gain but mostly spread out over the trip. Please register using link below. "FallFest" is an AMC program to encourage people to get outdoors this week.

I love the outdoors and I generally backpack every chance I get. Helping those new to the sport is a passion for me as I believe backpacking and hiking are great ways to connect with nature.

I have been leading backpacking trips for the Appalachian Mountain Club and the Adirondack Mountain Club since 1975. I enjoy taking the time to look at the scenery and have a relatively slow pace. I am patient with beginners and enjoy helping them learn new skills.
