The Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) promotes the protection, enjoyment, and understanding of the mountains, forests, waters, and trails of the Appalachian region. AMC is the nation’s oldest outdoor recreation and conservation organization. The CT Chapter of AMC is a statewide organization that has something for everyone who loves to explore the outdoors, for beginners or experts. We offer hiking, kayaking, cycling, trail maintenance and land conservation activities throughout the year. So, what sets us apart?
• Trained leaders means our activities are organized, everyone stays together as a group assisting each other as needed and we follow certain safety protocols.
• Group activities are open to everyone (so long as you meet the fitness and equipment requirements).
Events listed as Young Members are designed for members ages 20-40 but all AMC events are open to all ages.
This Meetup group is sponsored by members of the AMC Connecticut Chapter. For additional information about AMC, the CT Chapter and the activities we-sponsor, please visit www.ct-amc.org. Thru the year, we offer more than 1000 activities. All current activities are listed on our website for each activity committee. For example, current hiking activites including skiing and showshoeing are shown at http://www.ct-amc.org/excursions/HikeListings.shtm.

Just a reminder that only AMC-approved leaders may lead activities that will be listed on this site. We can allow others to co-lead activities with an approved leader. We do welcome your suggestions for activities. If you are interested in becoming an approved leader, the next leader training is always shown on our website..
