June Overnight Adventure: Carter Notch
Sat, June 10, 2017, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM EDT
Join us as we hike Carter Notch in the White Mountains. We will hit three four thousand foot peaks, practice yoga each day, and stay in one of AMC's 100 year old full service huts.... What’s that mean? No tents or cooking necessary, the hut staff will provide us with beds, hot meals, and lots of evening entertainment. Weather permitting we'll do yoga under the stars!
WHAT TO EXPECT:
This is moderately strenuous retreat that will test your limits while bringing you back in touch with nature. Please be prepared to hike on steep and rocky terrain while carrying a bag with snacks and layers that can weigh between 10-20 pounds. While we encourage hiking novices to sign up, we recommend that you be in good athletic shape and capable of continuous activity for at least four hours at a time. The yoga will be gentle and empowering. No need to hike a yoga mat into the mountains, but I do recommend bringing a towel. We will head out rain or shine, so bring your rain coat and pack quick dry materials.
CARTER NOTCH HUT:
If you’ve never heard of staying over night in one of the historical White Mountain huts, you’re in for a treat! These huts are only accessible by foot, and are fully equipped with bunk beds, bathrooms, and a hut crew who will cook us two hot meals (dinner in the evening, breakfast in the morning). Each bunk comes with three wool blankets and a pillow, making sleeping bags an optional item on your packing list.
We will be hiking a loop that connects three peaks together. The first day we will summit one peak and stay overnight in Carter Notch Hut. The next day we will wake up eat breakfast and summit the remaining two peaks as we complete the loop that will bring us back to our accent down to the parking lot.
Day 1 Wildcat Mountain (Peak A) Elevation: 4,422 feet.
( This peak is optional)
Day 2 Cater Dome Mountain Elevation: 4,832 feet
