Join us as celebrate the arrival of fall by hiking to Galehead hut!
Set between the Franconia & Twin Mountain ranges, the excursion possibilities are endless! No tents or cooking necessary, as we will stay overnight in one of AMC's high mountains huts! The hut staff will provide us with beds, hot meals, and lots of evening entertainment. Weather permitting we'll do yoga under the stars! Only 8 spots available so sign up fast :)
The huts offer hikers of all levels a fantastic entry point into backcountry travel. No camping experience required! Bunk bed accommodations allow you to leave your bulky sleeping bag at home. Enjoy in-season home-cooked breakfast and dinner, cold running water and composting or waterless toilets.

This is strenuous retreat that will test your limits while bringing you back in touch with nature. Please be prepared to hike on steep and rocky terrain while carrying a bag with snacks and layers that can weigh between 10-20 pounds. While we encourage hiking novices to sign up, you must be in good athletic shape and capable of continuous activity for at least four hours at a time. The yoga will be gentle and empowering. No need to hike a yoga mat into the mountains, but I do recommend bringing a towel. This retreat is on rain or shine, so bring your raincoat and pack quick dry (non cotton) materials.
40+liter Backpack ( I have two for rent)
