The Appalachian Mountain Club’s (AMC) Highland Lodge at Crawford Notch is recognized as one of Outside Magazine’s top 10 “Best Adventure Lodges” in its 2011 Adventure issue. The magazine selected the lodge as an eco-friendly jumping off point for outdoor adventure in the White Mountain National Forest—including climbing Mt. Washington and nearby New Hampshire 4,000-footer mountain peaks, hiking hut-to-hut along AMC’s eight hut network, and joining guided AMC trips and outdoor skills programs.

Located in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, Highland Lodge offers year-round, door-step access to some of the most challenging terrain in the Northeastern U.S. for hiking, backpacking, climbing, snowshoeing, and backcountry skiing.

Outside also distinguished Highland Lodge for its many “green” features, including a recycled steel frame and biomass wood-burning boiler for heating. The lodge reflects the AMC’s long-standing commitment to using its lodges and huts as models for sustainable operations and environmental stewardship.

Highland Lodge, along with all of AMC’s New Hampshire mountain huts and lodges, have been recognized as “Environmental Champions,” the highest level of membership in the New Hampshire Lodging and Restaurant Association's Sustainable Lodging Program. This program identifies lodging properties in the state that are taking a leadership role in reducing the environmental impact of their operations.
