The Brattleboro Section of the Green Mountain Club is made up of about 100 outdoor enthusiasts with a broad range of interests and experience levels.
We maintain about 9 miles of the Long Trail starting at the crossing of the Winhall River (north of Stratton Pond) to VT Routes 11/30. We provide maintenance on 2 shelters: William B. Douglas Shelter and Spruce Peak Shelter. Many day hikers walk to Prospect Rock, which overlooks the deep Downers Glen in the foreground and provides an excellent lookout at Manchester and Mt Equionox.
Approximately 3 of the miles of our portion of the trail is within the Lye Brook Wilderness Area. The general terrain of the trail is very suitable for snowshoeing and backcountry skiing, maintaining an elevation between 1700' and 2600' throughout. This trail corridor is also the footpath for the Appalachian Trail.
We hold an Annual Business Meeting in March of every year, to elect officers and get entertained. We usually have a slide show from a far away place, such as bicycling New Zealand or canoeing down the Mackenzie River into the Arctic Sea. This meeting is usually held at the Dummerston Center Church.
