What should you bring to Fall Hiking Week?

Mountain peak in clouds

September is one of the most beautiful times of the year in the White Mountains. Bugs have disappeared, but it can turn cold, especially at higher elevations. Please be sure to bring adequate warm clothing - long pants, wool hats, scarves, gloves or mittens, rain gear, warm sweaters and jackets, with a day pack large enough to hold your extra gear. Sturdy boots are a must.

AMC's general packing recommendations are available at the AMC web site. The list also includes items such as extra socks, polypropylene or wool underwear, rain pants, 2 liters of water, energy snacks, map, compass, flashlight and sunscreen.

You will be staying each night at a resort hotel. All meals are provided by the resort as part of your fee, including a trail lunch which you will pack for yourself.
