In the Blue Hills, it's not mandatory to have 'official' hiking clothing and equipment. However, headlamps/flashlights are mandatory, as we  frequently complete hikes in the dark. Water and raincoats are mandatory as well. Please pay attention to the "one (1) Quart Minimum " of water.

NOTE: If you are interested in becoming a leader, please let us know and we will train you as a co-leader!

What to Bring:

  1. No dogs are permitted on these trips.
  2. Cell phones: May be brought but must be turned off during the hikes
  3. We will hike 'together'. Please plan to complete the hike with us. Light rain will not cancel the hikes. Under severe weather conditions ( if it starts pouring) we, as a group, will decide to continue or head back.
  4. Thunderstorms/ Lightning will cancel or shorten the trips! As will Tornadoes!!
  5. Anyone with a medical condition (asthma inhaler, epipen, etc.) please inform the leader.
  6. Non-AMC members are permitted and encouraged to attend our hikes. ( hopefully having fun with us will encourage them/you to join.
  7. If you would like to bring a friend, whom you know to have experience, the proper equipment, etc., just let us know a few days before the hike.
  8. There are rattlesnakes and copperheads within the Blue Hills. Rare but they do exist. If you are concerned about this, please ask now, not when we meet one on the trail!
