Going forward, all scheduled outings must follow GMC's guidelines.

Bread Loaf Section is focused on fall trail work. In the meantime...

"Maps & Resources" page is a list for areas to explore close to home in Champlain Valley with members of your household.

- OR - "Adventures with Ivor!" Pop some popcorn and go to the movies (on YouTube) and experience new hikes with Ivor.

GMC has scheduled a variety of events to bring the GMC to your home!

Safety Reminders including link to Hunting Season dates (on this website)

To help ensure a safe and fun outdoor experience, we strongly encourage you to read and learn from these online resources before heading outside:

Bring a map!

  • Refer to published maps & resources. (We maintain a variety of links to info on this website.)

  • To check out the GMC's new digital downloadable maps that don't require cell phone service, click HERE. (Or click on GMC's 'Shop' menu item.) Once there, scroll down to view all available maps. Please note that GMC strongly recommends always having a paper map and compass in the backcountry. Digital devices may fail due to batteries dying, getting wet or broken, etc, and should only be used as an addition to paper maps.

Explore local area trails with the children in your life!
