We are the Bread Loaf Section of the Green Mountain Club in the Addison County area of Vermont. Details of all activities & events are on our calendar. Non-members are always welcome. Read more about who we are on our About page.

GMC is working on a variety of "virtual events" to bring the GMC to your home!

COVID-19 Response: Most of the outings announced in our spring newsletter have been canceled. Check our Calendar.

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!
