The Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) seeks adventurous women for a long-term relationship on trails, streams and mountains.

Since 1876, AMC has promoted the protection and enjoyment of mountains, forests, waters, and trails.

They organize exhilarating and safe adventures, but not wimpy safe.

Adventurous Women Hiking Adventure

September 4-6, AMC will lead a group of women on a "moderately challenging" hike of 4000+ foot peaks in Crawford Notch in the White Mountains.

Friday evening begins with dinner and a welcome session with AMC guides.

Leaders will cover what to expect on the hike, including terrain, trail conditions, weather, hiking safety, gear and Leave No Trace principles.

Guides will point out interesting flora/fauna and offer insight on the natural and cultural history of the surrounding mountains.

Hikers will attempt at least one 4000-footer on Saturday and one on Sunday, depending on conditions.
