Welcome to the Maine Young Members (YM)!

The Maine Chapter Young Members group is growing! Due to participant involvement and members stepping up to become leaders, we are able to offer more events each season.

2nd summit Baldface Circle Trail 9/22/12

2nd summit Baldface Circle Trail 9/22/12

Our focus is to get young folks in their 20’s and 30’s, and young at heart, involved in AMC activities: socialization, recreation, and conservation. We are hoping to increase young membership in the AMC and to ensure that the Maine Chapter remains strong and active well into the future. The Young Members Committee will plan workshops, trips, and events geared towards specific interests, while also working with other AMC committees and outing clubs on Maine’s college campuses.

Lonesome Lake Hut Weekend

Date: Friday, November 1 - Sunday, November 3

South Kinsman in WinterHere's your chance to stay at Lonesome Lake Hut with breathtaking views of Franconia Ridge across a pristine glacial lake! This is the most accessible hut in the White Mountains at just 1.6 miles from the trailhead. This hut offers access to nearby mountains such as Cannon, North & South Kinsman as well as lakeside hiking trails. There is often some snow and ice in November in the White Mountains so you should have hiking experience in cold weather and microspikes or similar boot traction (we may have extra spikes to lend).
