Mark your calendar! Nelson and Brooke from the Waterville Valley Recreation Department are going to lead an overnight backpacking trip to the AMC Madison Spring Hut in Randolph, NH on Thursday, Sept. 5, 2019.
The cost is $199 per person ($175 with a Native ID). Transportation will be provided. Hiking experience is necessary. This trip is for adults only (18+). Get cracking and sign-up because space is limited to 13 people.
Madison Spring is one of the AMC’s iconic (and award-winning) huts. According to the website, “Views from Madison Spring Hut and its closest peaks will knock your socks off. The hut sits above the treeline at the northern end of the Presidential Range and overlooks the sheer walls of Madison Gulf. Hike a moderate 3.8 miles to spectacular views of the Presidential, Kilkenny, and Pilot Ranges. For a closer-in feel, jog over to nearby Star Lake and marvel at the fragile alpine flora unique to this little corner of the world.”
“First built in 1888, Madison Spring Hut has been newly rebuilt and greets hikers with wide, open views and comfortable bunks. Its heritage as AMC’s first high mountain hut is honored by the fantastic croo that serves up hearty meals and offers helpful information about the surrounding trails, geology, and plant life.”
This will surely be a highlight of your summer. Have questions? Contact Brooke or Nelson at 603-236-4695.
