AMC's Mohican Outdoor Center and White Mountain National Forest backcountry campsites have reopened after being closed due to the government shutdown.
National Park Service officials have reopened the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area (DWGNRA) and, as a result, Mohican is once again open for business.
AMC has also confirmed with the U.S. Forest Service that Hermit Lake Shelters and other backcountry shelters and tentsites in the WMNF have reopened.
AMC's Fall Gathering at Camp Speers-Eljabar will proceed as scheduled with no changes to the originally scheduled roster of events & activities.
As was the case during the shutdown, AMC's Huts, Joe Dodge Lodge, Pinkham Visitor Center, Highland Center and Cardigan Lodge remain open. WMNF trails, the Appalachian Trail, and the New England Trail also continue to be open to hikers.
Guests with questions or concerns about reservations at Mohican
should contact AMC Reservations at (603) 466-2727. Anyone with
questions about the status of White Mountain trails and shelters should
contact the Pinkham Notch Visitor Center front desk at (603) 466-2721.
