Grade 10 – AMC Day Hikes

This group of sophomores will participate in a fun, relaxed, but sometimes challenging (it is up to you!) hiking trip based out of the historic Pinkham Notch visitor center. The trailheads located at the center provide access to New Englands famed Tuckerman and Huntington Ravines, as well as the Gulf of Slides. Needless to say, opportunities abound for a wide variety of hiking objectives. Please keep in mind that Pinkham Notch is a heavily used are of the White Mountains, thus, we need to do our best to be stewards of the natural landscape as well as respectful of other visitors. 

Please review the information below to ensure you are prepared for the trip and feel free to contact Blake Keogh (oe@waynflete.org) with any questions.
