Outings

Our Outings Committee organizes general, non-technical events such as hiking, road and rail trail biking, cross-country skiing, and backpacking trips.

We have a very active list of hiking trips. Most of the year, at least two or three hikes are scheduled each week. Most hikes are on weekends, but we do have a tradition of Tuesday Hiking trips as well.

Check out the schedule! Also, read our page on joining a hiking trip. Sometimes, in the winter, our "hiking" trips suddenly become "snowshoeing" or "cross-country skiing" trips. Such is life in New England…

We're always looking for new trip leaders, especially those with new ideas for trails to hike. If you're interested, please contact our Outings Chair.
