What is the Appalachian Mountain Club?
Since 1876, the Appalachian Mountain Club has been promoting the protection, enjoyment, and wise use of the mountains, rivers, and trails of the Northeast outdoors.
We are the nation’s oldest outdoor recreation and conservation organization.
We offer over 8,000 trips each year, from local chapter activities to major excursions worldwide, for every ability level and outdoor interest – from hiking and climbing to paddling to snowshoeing and skiing.
Great Places to Stay
We serve over 140,000 guests each year at our AMC Lodges, Huts, Full-Service Camps, Cabins, Shelters and Campgrounds – each AMC Destination is a model for environmental education and stewardship.
Opportunities for Learning
We teach people the skills to be safe outdoors and care for the natural world around us, through programs for children, teens and adults, as well as outdoor leadership training.
Caring for Trails
We maintain over 1,700 miles of trails throughout the Northeast, including nearly 350 miles of the Appalachian Trail in five states.
Protecting Wild Places
We advocate for land and riverway conservation, monitor air quality, and work to protect alpine and forest ecosystems through the Northern Forest and Highlands regions.
