The AMC Western Massachusetts Appalachian Trail Management Committee (AT Committee) is responsible for the maintenance, management, and protection of the almost 90 miles of Appalachian Trail within Massachusetts. The AT Committee coordinates the extensive volunteer effort that keeps the trail open and beautiful. The Committee works in partnership with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC), the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), and the National Park Service (NPS).
Each year from April to September, we organize regular work parties for maintenance and improvement of the footbed, trail shelters, signs, and so on.
Projects vary in complexity, but all include activities for both first timers and seasoned maintainers, so please check out the season's schedule of trail work days (download from our AT Getting Involved page) and then contact a project leader to join in the fun. No experience is necessary to participate! We also have some open positions for regular trail maintainers. If you're interested, see AT Getting Involved. Our committee meets regularly at the Mt. Greylock Visitors' Center in Lanesboro, MA.
