Our Outings are Epic

Here are some tips to make them even more epic.

Find the Perfect Outing

Take a look at the detailed listings for Burlington section outings. Then, read the following trip guidelines. You don’t need to be a GMC member to join a hike. Guests are welcome. Please join us! And, of course, have fun!

Get the Details

Unless otherwise noted, please call the trip leader to sign up, and to find out what equipment you’ll need, and learn about details not mentioned in the announcement. Check with trip leader before bringing your pet along. Guests are always welcome. Trip leaders often arrange carpooling. If you ride along in someone else’s car, we recommend reimbursing the driver (see below). Many outings meet at the UVM metered parking lot near the water tower. Access is from East Avenue or Williston Road. Be sure you know the meeting place if there is one!

Support Your leader

Our trip leaders are volunteers who are not necessarily trained in First Aid, nor does the Burlington Section certify or license trip leaders. Participants should attend these events with the understanding that they are responsible for their own preparedness and safety and the well-being of the group.

Compensate Your Driver

The guideline for outings is to reimburse the driver for gas. This is a matter between you and your driver. Suggested amount: $.05 per mile round trip. We recommend that driver and rider(s) agree about payment at the beginning of the trip.
