Show the Long Trail Some Love!

We LOVED seeing so many of you out on the trail on Long Trail Day on September 10. Thanks to your hard work and generosity, we've already raised $30,000 to support the care and protection of the Long Trail. 

Donations will remain open until September 24 to allow for any outstanding contributions, so if you are still working towards your goal, keep going, you are doing great!

The Long Trail - pick your favorite section or side trail! Join GMC volunteers for guided, themed hikes leaving from Barnes Camp in Stowe, or browse what GMC Sections have planned.


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.
