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 are an organization of 90,000 members in 12 chapters with 20,000 volunteers and over 450 full time and seasonal staff. Our chapters reach from Maine to Washington D.C., including active chapters in the Boston, New York City and Philadelphia metro areas. 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.
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. We also maintain over 1,700 miles of trails throughout the Northeast, including nearly 350 miles of the Appalachian Trail in five states.
