Easy Saturday Bicycle Ride to Ward's and Randall's and Roosevelt Island

Date: Saturday, August 8 - Saturday, August 8

Here's an easy bicycle ride around Ward's Island, Randall's Island, and Roosevelt Island. Right about 18 miles round trip; pace generally below 10 mph, sometimes well below, and only a couple of places to ride uphill for a few hundred feet, at the most. Almost exclusively on paved bicycle paths; about a mile in a protected bicycle lane, and then another 1/4 mile in a bicycle lane. Some fun, safe downhill sections where you can go faster! But mostly it's a mostly flat ride, and very, very safe. This is a most beautiful and scenic route; wonderful plants and bushes and shaded areas; a marsh area, and some historical sites too. The highlight of the trip is the FDR Four Freedoms Monument on the southern tip of Roosevelt Island. Casual, leisurely ride good for chatting and meeting new friends. Lots of bathrooms and places to fill up your water bottles. This is a great ride for folks new to bicycle riding, and not at all good if you want to race or have a hard workout. That being said, you must be able to ride your bicycle faster than someone out for a fast jog. But, no Citibikes please. We've tried this before and it's just not workable. This is a "no drop" group ride, which means the group will only ride as fast as the slowest rider can keep up. Please, if you join the ride, be aware this might occur and you'll be riding slower than you would by yourself. Please make sure your bike is in good working order; tires are pumped up properly and your gears work, etc. And, please, don't forget your helmet. Absolutely. We'll follow all covid guidelines, which means bring your mask and wear it when social distancing is not possible. Bring hand sanitizer too, please. There isn't anywhere to buy snacks though, so plan for that. Nearer to the end of the ride, on Roosevelt Island, probably about 1:00 PM, we'll stop for pizza or sushi or Starbucks on Roosevelt Island and sit under a big shade tree for lunch. Per the AMC covid policies, the exact starting location is only sent to participants who are confirmed for the ride. The ride will begin and end on the East Side of Manhattan, above Midtown and below the Upper East Side. Exact location to be sent out on Friday, August 7, 2020. Please, group size is limited, so please don't register just to "save your spot in case you want to go for a bicycle ride on Saturday." We've had a lot of people who couldn't join the ride in the past because of last minute cancellations. Questions? Please call me: 212 979-2868

Cranberry Lake & Five Ponds Wilderness Backpack - 3C60

Date: Wednesday, September 2 - Monday, September 7

This 6 day backpacking trip will have us hiking over rolling hills, past lakes, ponds and rivers of the Cranberry Lake Wild Forest and Five Ponds Wilderness. Some backpacking will be on the CL50 trail. Other times we will backpack side trails and ascend a few moderate peaks. A highlight will be backpacking to Sand Lake in the Five Ponds Wilderness. For those who haven't been to this area it's an introduction to a truly wild place with remnants of logging and sportsmen's camps inhabited in the early 1900. Each night we will camp near water where swiming is possible. We will travel at a moderate pace and cover 10-12 miles a day. There are no early outs once we get started. This is a trip suited for experienced multi day backpackers who can manage their food and gear for 5 days. This is not suitable for first time backpackers. Please refer to the Adirondack Mountain Club's " Western Trails 1st Edition " for detailed information. See the Nat Geo Old Forge/Oswegatchie Map #745 for trail and topographic information.

Backpacking the Hammersley Wild Area via Cross Fork Trailhead.

Date: Friday, September 4 - Sunday, September 6

The Hammersley Wild Area lies within the Susquehannock State Forest and is known for its beautiful forests and streams. Trekkers remark about solitude, quietude, and dark evening skies given it is the largest roadless area in Pennsylvania. There are 50+ miles of marked hiking trails including a 9-mile portion of the Susquehannock Trail System (STS). This 18.5 mile backpack moves camp each day and includes a 1,400' climb at the beginning and a waterless campsite on Saturday night. This challenge is offset by the very nice swimming hole on Friday and magnificent view on Saturday night. This is a very remote area and the odds of meeting anyone on the trails are slim even on a holiday weekend. To ensure your safety and enable you to join us on this hike, you must register here on the AMC Activities Database web site, complete the liability waiver form, and have your registration confirmed by this activity's AMC Chapter Leader. You will be notified by email when you are confirmed as a participant. ANYONE NOT RECEIVING A REGISTRATION CONFIRMATION FROM THIS ACTIVITY'S LEADER WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO JOIN THE GROUP AT THE TRAILHEAD. AN RSVP ON MEETUP IS NOT CONSIDERED BEING REGISTERED FOR THIS ACTIVITY - THAT CAN ONLY BE ACCOMPLISHED HERE ON THE AMC ACTIVITY DATABASE WEB SITE. In the event that social distancing (6 feet) cannot be maintained during this activity, every participant must have a suitable medical or cloth mask made of two layers of fabric with them which covers their nose and mouth that they can use. Moderate: Fitness level and/or past experience to sustain the activity at a moderate pace is required. Expect to be active up to 4-6 hours per day. Reasonable breaks in the action. Note that part of this is a scouting trip for the leaders. Bear Canisters or Ursacks are required.

Canceled: Mt. Carrigain via Desolation Trail NH - 4 days in the Pemigewasset Wilderness

Date: Friday, September 18 - Monday, September 21

This 4 day three night backpack is generally over easy to moderate terrain except for the short steep climb of Carrigain from the north via the Desolation Trail. Carrigain at 4,700' is #13 on the 4,000 footer list. Overall gain/(loss) is 4,450'/(4,450'). Our trip route is an out and back from the Signal Ridge Trailhead. We start on Friday with a 6.5 mile backpack up Signal Ridge Trail to the Carrigain Notch Trail which we will take around Carrigain to avoid the crowds to climb it from the back side on Saturday. Our day will include about 1,300' of elevation gain. We base camp for all three nights on the north side of Carrigain. This trip includes 2 climbing days with one hard day and one easy day. Whichever day has the best weather we will climb Carrigain via the Desolation Trail, a 1.9 mile 2,500' ascent and then 2,500' descent back to camp after. The other hiking day will be to head north on the Shoal Pond Trail to Shoal Pond and back to camp for a total of 7 miles round trip with about 650' of elevation gain. If we have enough time and the weather is good we will take a side hike to a nice cascade area off the main trail. Monday we retrace our steps back to our cars for an additional 6.5 miles. Total miles covered is 23.8. Pace will be fairly slow but steady. Part of this backpack is a scouting trip for the leaders. We have done all of this route recently except for the Carrigain Notch Trail and the side hike off the Shoal Pond Trail. This area tends to be wet and boggy and there are a number of stream crossings. Water shoes required along with leader required bear canister or Ursack. Temperatures may be cool at night. No campfires allowed. Open to those in good physical condition with previous backpacking experience. If we have not hiked together previously please include more detail in your registration form about trips you have been on, who the leaders were and a way for me to contact them for a reference. Contact leader for more information.
