    I'd love to be able to join an actual hike sometime. I'm in a few Meetup hiking groups, but it seems they are all either too advanced in their hikes and/or or they hold more social events than actual hikes in the woods... ;-(

      Thanks Rumana. I finally had to speak with an AMC rep on the phone...so many 'codes' on their site...it all seemed overly-complicated. Anyway indeed, many of their hikes are accessible by public transport, but many of these mean buses (I generally don't do long bus rides) or else they are on trains, but could involve 4 different legs just for me to get there from my home to the eventual hiking spot. I used to be a member of Wild Earth Adventures but...their prices and annual membership are a bit steep. But I have to say...their hikes were perfect for me in so many ways: they provide direct car transport from a central location in Manhattan to the hiking location, their hikes are always small (anywhere from 6-15 people), the people were always very nice and sociable, and they have plenty of moderate hikes in the 5-8 mile range (which is my speed). So...I may just have to consider going back with them.
