Winter Hike up Mt Avalon at Crawford Notch

  • Tuesday, December 12, 2023
  • 10:00 AM
  • Start Point is AMC Highland Center Crawford Notch, Bethlehem, NH
  • 4


Registration is closed

Join Kimm and Kenn  for a Winter Hike  either Dec 11, 12 or 13 2023, depending on the weather.  This hike is concurrent with the Bretton Woods Ski Trip.

  • Mt Avalon Elevation 3,461 ft
  • Trailhead adjacent to AMC Highland Center
  • Route: Avalon Trail, Mt. Avalon Spur. 3.6 mi round trip with 1,540 ft elevation gain.
This hike would be appropriate for experienced hikers only. The trail includes a “long, very steep ascent with rugged footing“ and “climbs steeply with one ledgy and potentially difficult scramble.“ Conditions in December vary. We would be expecting hikers to have micro spikes and, if need be, snowshoes. The AMC Highland Center has these available in their equipment room. In addition we would expect everyone to carry the 10 essentials The 10 Essentials: What to Pack For a Backcountry Hike

We are thinking Dec 11,12, or 13 depending on weather.   Exact date to be determined closer to hike date. 

We generally don’t hike very fast - ~1mi/hr. We would plan to head out around 10am from the lodge. Trail-lunches can be ordered at the Highland Center. (Order the night before - vegan option available). We love to have lunch at the summit. The view from the summit includes several peaks in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and a view of the Presidential Range including Washington Eisenhower and Pierce.

My husband and I are experienced hikers in the white mountains. Having hiked a number of 4000 footers and many of the 52 WAV (with a view) peaks. We have experience hiking in all seasons.
If you intend to go you must make your own overnight reservations at the AMC Crawford Notch Highland Center, at (603) 466-2727
