Description

Hiking Club Cardigan Lodge Fall Outing

Friday October 25th - Sunday October 27th, 2019

Join the HSPH Hikers Club for our annual fall overnight trip to Mount Cardigan. Celebrate crisp Autumn days, hikes through New Hampshire foliage, outdoor adventures and trips to local breweries, lakes, farms and waterfalls. Whether you are looking to climb and boulder all day or prefer relaxing by the camp fire, this trip has something for everyone.


The trip includes all meals, transportation and two options for accomodations. Either pitch a tent at the group campsite or jump under the covers in one of the lodge's rooms.


We will organize an optional day hike and the rest of the time is yours--hang out, relax, get schoolwork done (Cardigan Lodge has a peaceful lounge and WiFi - though the service isn't great), make new friends and enjoy nature away from the city!
