What we're about

Hello! Welcome to the MeetUp page for the Berkshire (Western Mass) Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club! Our motto is "Your Connection to the Outdoors" and with stewardship and fun, we hope to continue to connect with you as well. Unique from other groups, we offer more than just hiking or other outdoor activities. We offer training and volunteer opportunities for you to do more of what you love and get other people involved too.

Only a subset of the chapter's activities are posted on Meetup. To see the entire list of current activities and opportunities in our chapter, follow this link:

Participation in AMC activities is open to members and non-members alike. We hope, of course, that you will consider becoming a member to help us continue offering these types of programs, and if you are a member, we hope you will become actively involved and fill our Meetup page with new activities!

Mt. Equinox, VT: 20s/30s/Young-at-Heart


Join us for an autumn ascent of Mt. Equinox, the highest peak of the Taconics! We will hike a total of six miles to the summit and back, with the option of stopping at Lookout Rock. Along the way, we will have great views of the Taconic and Green Mountains and surrounding countryside. This is a difficult and strenuous hike, with approximately 2800 feet of elevation gain, but it’s well worth the effort. Registration through meetup is not permitted. Please register here: https://activities.outdoors.org/search/index.cfm/action/details/id/119449 Additional details, including meeting time and place, will be provided to those who register.
