Run away and join the trail crew for a week! Meet new people - all ages, backgrounds, and from all over the U.S. and the world. Camp out in the Vermont mountains. Learn how to build and maintain hiking trails - or, if you're already an experienced trail maintainer, practice your skills on some neat projects.
The crew is made up of 8 - 10 volunteers each week led by experienced paid staff. The GMC will provide food, group camping gear, tools, skills training, and pretty good times. This crew works every year from mid- July through late September. A minimum of one week commitment is required, although people can choose to stay longer!
To apply, just use the standard volunteer application. To learn about our sister volunteer trail crews on other parts of the Appalachian Trail go to Appalachian Trail Conservancy web page.
