Cardigan Lodge is set on a 1,200-acre reservation owned and managed by the AMC in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. Three Trail Work Weekends are hosted each year on AMC’s Cardigan Mountain Reservation in Alexandria, N.H. Working with experienced leaders, volunteers take on projects from basic maintenance to advanced rock and wood structures. You don’t need to be an expert as training is provided. This is a great way to hike with a purpose and to learn and practice outdoor skills. The Weekend Trail Work Parties run from Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon and includes two nights lodging and meals at AMC Cardigan Lodge
In order to participate, pre-registration is required by calling AMC Reservations: (603) 466-2727, Monday-Saturday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
