About Long Trail Day


Long Trail Day is a social fundraiser and celebration of hiking in Vermont! Individuals and teams will hike anywhere along the Long Trail on September 21 to have fun and raise money to support the Long Trail and all those who benefit from the mountains and trails of Vermont.

Can't hike that day? You can still participate by registering and fundraising online, with the same awards and prizes.

The Long Trail – Join GMC sections for groups hikes and trail magic throughout the state, celebrate with GMC staff and sponsors at Barnes Camp for trail magic, or hike your own hike!



GMC cares for the trails, but we can't do it alone. Recently, we’ve seen the combined challenges of increased use on the trail, and imapcts of climate change. 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!
