Hey everyone so I was wondering if there is any groups or clubs in the MA/NH area? I have been trying to search for a group to go with but have not found anything.

I have been bitten by the climbing bug but unfortunately for me my friends do not share this.

Thanks for the help!

There is always the AMC:

There is always something to do with them. There is also these groups. You need a sponsor to participate in their forums, but VFTT has many different levels of hikers. You can hook up with a group and make some friends then someone will sponsor you. Check out their trips and events section. If you are a beginner be careful not to pick an overly ambitious hike as some of these folks will leave even seasoned hikers in the dust. :D

There is also the kinder, gentler hikers ;) at:

I know some folks from both groups and they are all good folk who share the same reverence and respect for the mountains as most do who have ever spent any time there.
