Other Features

AMC has a long-standing commitment to using its huts, lodges and sporting camps as models for sustainable operations and environmental stewardship.

Our Hut Naturalist offers daily programs about the local flora and fauna before and after dinner in full-service season. Kids can complete an activity booklet to earn their Junior Naturalist patch.

AMC offers a Hiker Shuttle to major hut trailheads from Highland Center and Pinkham Notch Visitor Center/Joe Dodge Lodge (summer and fall).

The friendly AMC hut “croo” or caretaker are available to assist you with trip planning, trail information, and weather reports.

CANCELLATION POLICY

There are no refunds or transfers of payments after the final payment deadline due to the fact that we are required to make retreat payments that are no longer refundable after this time. We encourage you to look into travel insurance for extenuating circumstances. 

We realize that some extenuating circumstances may prohibit you from attending, which may include inclement weather & other circumstances beyond your control. However, due to non-recoverable payments that we must make in advance to secure the retreat centers, we cannot make exceptions regardless of the circumstance. We appreciate your understanding.
