Trip leaders, including your truly, are volunteers. Participants provide their own gear and cover their own costs. Trips are limited to small groups (usually 14 people or less), usually fill up and always have prerequisites in terms of experience, ability and gear. Please be prepared for trips to be full when you inquire, or for a trip leader to decide that you need more experience before attempting the trip in question. For AMC trips, you may also check the AMC calendar. I will try and schedule trips for beginners at least once a year.
(Additional trips and dates may be added at a later date. Be sure to check back.)

(AMC, NY/NoJ Chapter Trip)
Edward Island (PEI). From North Shore to South Shore and East Point to West
Point, our scenic route circles the island, returning to where we started.
Expect dramatic coastlines, inviting swimming beaches, picturesque rolling
hillsides, historic farms, scenic roads, lots of exercise, fresh air…and good
produce, bakery goods and ice cream.
$500 estimated cost for campground fees and group gear (i.e., first aid, maps, tools). Trip run at cost: any shortfall will be made up by participants equally, any excess is refunded equally during trip. Full accounting provided. Non-AMC members need to join the AMC (cheap) to join the trip.
