Calendar of Activities

Outings have resumed (with a few restrictions).

GMC updated COVID-19 precautions on May 17, 2021.
All outing participants must follow GMC's participant guidelines.

*Beginning in July 2020, the Green Mountain Club required that all participants register with the activity leaders in advance, acknowledging that they have read, understood, and agree to follow the GMC outings guidelines.

When our hike leaders publish outings, many choose to omit start times. Why?

1) We prefer that potential participants contact the leader so they can provide details & any last minute changes to the hike plans!
2) We can wait a few minutes if someone who is expected is delayed.
3) We avoid posting the time when cars at trailheads will be unattended.

Abbey Pond Trail, a favorite hike

Have you hiked up to Abbey Pond lately? All year 'round, it is a favorite Middlebury hike!

Significant trail improvements were completed on the upper trail in Aug. 2013, and this year additional rock work on stream crossings was completed in October 2014 (photos) thanks to generous donations to the Levi Duclos Memorial Fund.

Check out our photos (slideshow) taken on our Sunday, October 20, 2013 hike so you can appreciate portions of the "new" trail.

For more background and photos, go to our Abbey Pond Trail Project page.

These look good! Big improvement to the crossing at the pond's outlet.
