Overview

This trip is part of the Boston Chapter Winter Hiking Program (WHP) and is only open to enrolled participants of that program. If you would like more information about the WHP, please email us at whp21@hb.amcboston.org or follow the link below. This hike to Mt. Garfield (4,500') offers wonderful views of the surrounding Pemigewasset Wilderness on a clear day. Mt. Lafayette, Mt. Liberty, the Bonds and Owl's Head and several other four thousand footers can be seen from its summit. This is a long hike in winter, so previous winter hiking experience is strongly suggested. It is quite possible that we will be finishing by headlamp. To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out.

AMC Trip Policy

For your personal safety, you should expect to be in the presence of vaccinated and unvaccinated people in all AMC settings and should make choices about participating accordingly.
