Overnight Adventure: Mizpah Spring Hut July
Sat, Jul 29, 2017, 8:00 AM – Sun, Jul 30, 2017, 5:00 PM EDT
Join us as we hike the Appalachian Trail. Together we will practice yoga and summit three peaks of the Southern Presidential Mountain Range. We will stay overnight in one of AMC's full service huts which means no tents or cooking necessary! The hut staff will provide us with beds, hot meals, and lots of evening entertainment.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
This is strenuous retreat that will test your limits, empower your soul, and bring 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 15-20 pounds. While I encourage hiking novices to sign up, I 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. Be prepared to practice yoga on dirt,rocks, and uneven terrain. This retreat will be on rain or shine, no refunds, so bring your rain coat and pack quick dry materials.
MIZPAH SPRING 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.
