Happy Birthday GMC!

Today, March 11th, is the Green Mountain Club’s 107th birthday!  Back in 1909, while taking in the view from Stratton Mountain, James P. Taylor first envisioned a “long” trail connecting the entire length of the Green Mountains.  The following year, he, along with 22 other Vermonters, formed the Green Mountain Club.  The Long Trail took them the next twenty years to construct.

Today, at 107 years old, we have grown to about 9,500 members and more than a thousand volunteers.  The GMC continues to protect and maintain the Long Trail, along with the Appalachian Trail in Vermont and Northeast Kingdom Trails.  Thank you for being part of the community and helping us continue to flourish into our second century!
