This is one of the trickier climbs. Galehead is remote but well worth it. Excellent food, staff and sleeping quarters. I love how the staff wakes you up with music and song. Another terrific AMC service. Keep up the great work AMC!

Don't read any further if you are looking for a place to drive up to and hop in bed. It takes a good 3-4 hours of hiking to reach the hut. If you are a hiking and wonder about staying in an AMC hut, read on! This hut is perfectly placed to reach a number of more remote peaks in... More

We had the best mini pancakes for breakfast. The homemade soup and the loaf of freshly baked bread are a real treat after a day... More
