The Connecticut Section of the Green Mountain Club (CSGMC) is made up of members with interests in a wide range of outdoor sports. Most activities involve day hikes of three to six miles along the hiking trails in CT. Since our members cover a wide range of abilities, ages, and experience, a hike can range from an easy and short hike in one of central CT's parks to a more ambitious hike to one of western CT's mountains. However, the club's year-round activity schedule may include biking, canoeing, extended backpacking trips, and cross country skiing or snow-shoeing weekends in the winter. This allows for more ambitious activities as a member gains experience and acquires equipment.
