The Long Trail


Hiking is more popular than ever! You may have noticed busy trailheads and summits, and it's important that we protect and maintain these amazing spaces. GMC cares for the trails, but we can't do it alone. With increased use comes increased expenses, so we need your help to fundraise for the future of the Long Trail.

We hope you can invest in the future of hiking in Vermont and participate in Long Trail Day!

Won't you join us?

The Green Mountain Club is the founder and maintainer of the Long Trail - the oldest long distance hiking trail in America. Established in 1910 to build this trail stretching the length of Vermont, the club now also maintains the Appalachian Trail in Vermont and trails in the Northeast Kingdom in its mission to "make the Vermont mountains play a larger part in the life of the people." GMC is proud that for over 100 years, the trail has remained free and open to all to enjoy.
