AMC is working with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation to create primitive campsites in Montague and Whately, MA as part of the Connecticut River Paddlers’ Trail, http://www.connecticutriverpaddlerstrail.org. Volunteers are needed to help us build the campsites during the weeks of July 4 and July 11. We are also in need of volunteers to help maintain the two campsites once they are built. Any interested maintainers are invited to attend a campsite maintenance training on Saturday, July 9th.
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.
