GMC COVID-19 Update (4-4-2020)
« on: April 06, 2020, 02:13:45 PM »
From Mike DeBonis, GMC Executive Director:

April 4, 2020

"We are in the middle of a health emergency and to avoid the spread of COVID-19, we all must stay home as much as possible. As of April 3, the Long Trail and side trails on state lands are closed by the Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation. The Green Mountain Club doesn?t have the authority to close trails on other lands, but we are asking everyone to please avoid using  the Long Trail, Appalachian Trail, side trails, and facilities until the Governor lifts the Stay at Home order.

It is important to know:

    It is spring mud season, trail conditions in many locations are poor, and trail use on wet and muddy trails are always discouraged during this time of year.
    Under the Governor?s order, trail work and maintenance are not considered essential or critical activities and are prohibited. This means that GMC staff and volunteers cannot get out to prepare and maintain trails for public use."
