Appalachian Mountain Club

Founded in 1876, the Appalachian Mountain Club promotes the protection, enjoyment, and understanding of the mountains, forests, waters, and trails of America’s Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.

We protect the mountains, forests, waters, and trails of the Northeast through hands-on stewardship, scientific research, and public policy advocacy. AMC and our volunteers care for more than 1,800 miles of trails throughout the Northeast, including nearly 350 miles of the Appalachian Trail in five states.

We advocate for land and riverway protection, monitor air quality, research climate change, and work to protect alpine and forest ecosystems through the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.
