There will be 'A', 'B' and 'C' hikes daily. In addition, information will be available for those people who would like to plan their own walk.
The 'A' hikes will usually tackle a 4,000 footer. The 'B' hikes are somewhat easier, but enough to challenge you. The C hikes, although easier, are more than pleasant strolls. They will keep you in the open air for the greater part of the day. We occasionally organize "D" hikes which are casual walks, shorter and over easier terrain, to visit points of interest. Information will be available for those people who wish to plan their own walks or outings. All hikes are led by volunteers.
Each day's hikes are generally located within a 15-60 minute drive of the hotel. The hike schedule is planned in advance to provide a variety of locations and levels of difficulty. Due to the unpredictability of the weather, many hikes are modified or changed at the last minute. A bulletin board will be located in a central meeting area containing detailed descriptions of each day's hikes as well as a sign-up sheet.
Hikes will typically depart for the trailhead 30-60 minutes after breakfast. You will pack your own trail lunch for the day from a table that is set up at the same time that breakfast is being served. Carpooling will be arranged ahead of time. You will return in time for dinner.

Many of our hikers are interested in "peak bagging" all 48 of the 4,000 foot mountains in New Hampshire. For more information, click here to go to the Official AMC 4K Club web site.
