AMC Huts Open for Full-Service Season June 3

The Appalachian Mountain Club's (AMC's) Lakes of the Clouds Hut on the shoulder of Mount Washington marks its 100th year of operation this month when it opens for the full-service season June 3.
About 4-1/2 miles southwest along the trail, AMC's Mizpah Spring Hut is set to open for its Golden Anniversary on that date, celebrating its 50th year of operation.

These two high mountain hikers' huts join another six operated by AMC along a 56-mile-long stretch of the Appalachian Trail in New Hampshire's White Mountains. The huts are off the grid and operate using environmentally sustainable systems such as solar and wind power. These backcountry hostelries provide meals, lodging, and educational programs in spectacular mountain locations, often miles from the nearest road.
