Family Adventure: Snowshoeing

Saturday, February 16 @ 12:00 am

This adventure is designed for families in search of a fun winter experience. Our trip begins with an orientation session and overnight at AMC’s Highland Center at Crawford Notch. On the first full day of the program, we’ll spend it outdoors learning how to use snowshoes and then hiking up Mt. Willard for a classic, Crawford Notch winter adventure. We’ll return for lunch and an afternoon of kid-friendly activities and dinner. After dinner we’ll enjoy a winter evening outdoors around a campfire. On day three we strap on our snowshoes and trek to nearby frozen waterfall, while looking for and identifying animal tracks. The terrain is beginner to moderate and the pace will be comfortable with plenty of time to explore and learn.

•Snowshoe clinic and hiking
•Snowshelter building
•Campfire & s’mores
•Fun, kid friendly activities throughout
•Animal tracking and natural history on the trail
