In support of the national effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to minimize the risks to the most vulnerable among us, AMC will immediately begin the process of temporarily closing all lodging and foodservice facilities and suspending all in-person staff and volunteer led programming through April 30.


The INTRO Committee provides members and friends of the Boston Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club with opportunities to participate in a variety of outdoor activities that include hiking, bicycling, skiing, paddling, camping, trail maintenance, and conservation projects, at the beginnner (INTROductory), advanced beginner, and intermediate levels. The INTRO Committee does not offer activities that require advanced skill levels.

Our trips are designed for enjoyment and appreciation of the outdoors, for friendly social engagement, and to advance your skill level, if desired. We also offer explorations of the natural world such as: local walks, animal tracking, natural history museums, nature writing, and photography and we try to make equipment rentals available on beginner trips.

Many of our activities are local day trips, but we also offer affordable weekends away from the Boston area throughout New England.
