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.

Monadnock-Metacomet Trail

This trail is largely combined with the New England Trail, a National Scenic Trail, and more information about both can be found at http://amcberkshire.org/netmm/. If you came to this page from a 'bookmark' please reset it to reflect the change.

Mass AT Management Committee

The Massachusetts Appalachian Trail Management Committee organizes Appalachian Trail supervision and maintenance within Massachusetts. If you'd like to be a part of this, get in touch with our chair (see below)!

Appalachian Trail Links

There are literally thousands of AT-related sites on the Web. Here are a few of our favorites (with a distinct New England bias).

AT Trail Maintaining and Shelter Adopting

Trail maintainers keep the footpath free of obstructions such as brush, and fallen trees. They also keep the white paint blazes that mark the AT fresh and easy to see. Shelter adopters take care of a particular shelter along the trail.
