The Green Mountain Club is supported in our work by our community of 9,000+ members. Our members have diverse interests, but all share the common goal of protecting and maintaining the Long Trail system. Your membership contribution ensures the stewardship of the trail and helps foster a community of lifelong hikers and outdoor adventurers.
If you have ever felt the urge to explore the beauty of the Green Mountains and walk the “footpath in the wilderness,” or be a part of a community of trail lovers, hiking experts, and dedicated volunteers, please consider joining the Green Mountain Club.
You can also join a section! Joining a Green Mountain Club section is a way to meet other club members in your region, enjoy local outings, and work with other section members on trail maintenance in your area. As a section member, you will receive outing schedules and newsletters from your section to keep you up-to-date on section news. Most sections have a year-round program of outings and social events.
