On May 17-18 2014 I led an exciting family backpacking trip to the White Mountain National Forest with 12 Scouts and fathers (AMC members as well) meeting Karen and Al from the PVHC at Galehead Hut. Planning the trip was tricky because originally, 21 people were paid or scheduled to hike, and some of the group needed to cancel last minute, including one parking lot casualty due to a stomach bug. Thanks goes to Lori Tisdell of the PVHC, who just finished her Culinary degree at HCC, who helped design a working menu of dinner and breakfast foods for the self-serve hut. Muah!

We will be opening the cabin on May 17th this year. Until then hikers are welcome to use the tent platforms or camp on the porch. Please leave no trace and cooking on the table out back only. Please use the bear boxes at the cabin or at each of the campsites.

"In Your Backyard" is a novel way to introduce families to local adventures. Meeting on the last Sunday of the month, our hikes have included Noble View's Pitcher Brook Falls in Russell, MA, Sanderson Brook Falls in Chester, MA, and Mt. Greylock! Ages have ranged from toddlers to grandparents.
Each hike has a theme from conservation to climate change, and the length adjusts to the ability of the hikers, typically from 2-6 miles. Please Contact Heather Wyman @ SquareRoot123@Gmail.com for more information on participating or with suggestions.
This trail is largely combined with the New England Trail, a National Scenic Trail. Due to a website update the M-M Trail Guide has been moved to http://amcberkshire.org/mmguide. If you came to this page from a 'bookmark' please reset it to reflect the change.
