Logo   Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC)
This outdoor activities organization maintains New England mountain hiking trails (including the Appalachian Trail) and a system of "huts" (hikers' dormitories) deep in the wilderness.



The Appalachian Mountain Club is America's oldest (founded 1876) conservation and recreation association, and the most prominent outdoor activities group in New England.

Its conservation, education and recreation activities help to preserve New England's environment and natural beauty for current and future generations.

AMC Hiking Guides tell you all about hiking trails (including the Appalachian Trail) in the White Mountain National Forest and other areas of the US east coast: how long, how difficult, the vertical rise, the average walking time, reference points along the way, and what to see as you walk.

Order your guides from the club, or buy them online, or at an AMC hut (such as their Pinkham Notch Visitor Center) or in a bookshop.

For more info, visit the AMC website or contact the club: 5 Joy St, Boston MA 02108 (tel 617-523-0655).

By the way, The Shuttle Connection can drive you (for a fee) from trailhead to trailhead, Pinkham Notch Visitor Center to trailhead or campsite.
