Hiking on the Appalachian Trail

Group Hiking and Camping Guidelines Revised for 2017!

Current closures, trail condition updates and changes to hiker services are posted by state on the Appalachian Trail Conservancy website. Thru- and long distance-hikers are encouraged to check the ATC website.

Our mission is to organize trail maintenance for the 52 miles of the Appalachian Trail and 12 miles of access trails in Connecticut.

CT AMC signs a Memorandum of Understanding for the Connecticut section of the AT. (June 4, 2012)

Report Trail Conditions

Did you encounter a blown down tree on the trail? How about a water source that has dried up, a washout or water running over the trail? Report these problems or other needed trail maintenance to people who can help by emailing the trail reports hotline [Click to reveal email]. Praise for the hard work done by these volunteers is always appreciated! When sending your report, include the name of the trail, the town, and the distance to the problem from a good landmark (campsite, trail head, road crossing, etc.). The more accurate your distance information, the sooner the problem is likely to receive attention. Thanks for your help!

Special Notices have been moved.
