For several years, we have enjoyed the “Popsicle” hike and stay at the AMC Lonesome Lake Hut in Franconia Notch during the middle of Winter. We are repeating this extremely popular event.  The trip format will be to meet at the Lafayette Place campground early on Saturday and hike about 1.5 miles to the hut with all our gear. We will drop off our bunk gear (sleeping bags, etc) at the hut and then take off on a hike for the day (to be determined prior to the hike – either Mt. Cannon or Kinsmans), return to the hut for a fantastic self-service “pot luck” meal, and Group frivolity. I currently have a block of reservations for (13) members with the AMC. Here’s the views you can expect in this area:

I will be selecting all the individuals who will join our hike based upon your answers to questions and, if you sign up, everyone will be “waitlisted” initially.

Here is the process once you are selected for this event:

• You will be moved to the RSVP “Going” list

• I will provide you with the instructions on how to make your reservation with the AMC (the cost is about $50 for Saturday night to stay at the hut if you are an AMC member). You will need to contact the AMC directly to prepay for your reservation.

• I will provide each of you with a gear list. The huts have separate bunk rooms that are unheated (hence Popsicle) and the toilets are separate as well. The only running water is in the main hut – along with a wood stove as our only heating source.

• We’ll schedule a “Pot Luck” dinner for Saturday night and then hike out to our cars on Sunday morning.

Honestly, this is a great way to enjoy staying in the mountains during the Winter and I guarantee it will be lots of fun. I plan to bring my butt sled for the hike out!

If you have any questions, please reach out to me. Move fast to sign up for this Event – reservations must be made before the middle of December.
