The mission of our club is to foster a community of individuals who are eager to spend time out in nature. Whether it be hiking across the rolling hills of Vermont’s Green Mountains in a sea of fall colors, paddling through the lakes, creeks, and rivers of the New York Adirondacks, or gliding across the snow on a cross-country skiing trail, we are committed to getting you out there. Our trips vary in difficulty, ranging from casual day hikes simply meant for appreciating the beauty of the woods, to strenuous treks that will be a true test of endurance. Regardless of whether you consider yourself to be a casual hiker or a rugged adventurer, there is something here for you. Formerly known as the Champlain Hiking Club.
