The Green Mountain Club
Founder and Maintainer of Vermont's Long Trail

The Green Mountain Club was established to build and maintain Vermont's Long Trail, America’s first long-distance hiking trail.  The Long Trail traverses the high peaks of Vermont for 270+ miles from the Massachusetts state line to the Canadian border.  Established in 1910, this 10,000 member, statewide organization also maintains the Appalachian Trail in Vermont and trails in Vermont’s beautiful Northeast Kingdom.  Relying on roughly 1,000 volunteers annually, the club manages more than 500 miles of hiking trail and 70 shelters and other overnight sites, has conserved more than 25,000 acres of high-elevation forest land, provides youth education and workshops, and stewards hundreds of miles of trail corridor lands.  The club relies heavily on member support to keep up with this work.  Thank you!  Read more »
