Show the Long Trail Some Love!

Commit to raising $1 for every mile of the 272-mile Long Trail, and get out for a hike on September 10 to celebrate the wonderful world of hiking in Vermont. 

Can't hike that day? That's ok! Raising money to support the care and protection of the Long Trail is more than enough.

The Long Trail - pick your favorite section or side trail!


The Green Mountain Club encourages hikers to get outside and hike the trail (including easier side trails) to experience firsthand the natural beauty, vistas, wildlife, and character of the Green Mountains of Vermont.

GMC maintains the condition of the trail and its facilities to make hiking in Vermont safe and enjoyable. We also staff backcountry caretakers to provide education along the way. We are inviting Vermonters and visitors alike to take a hike (solo or with a team) and support the trail by raising $1 per mile of the 272-mile Long Trail. 

The funds you raise will go directly to support GMC's work to maintain the Long Trail System for current and future generations of hikers and recreationists.

Get involved with this step-by-step guide to registering, and learn more about Long Trail Day on our Get Started page.
