ADDISON COUNTY — The Bread Loaf section of the Green Mountain Club will be joining other GMC clubs in the state in celebrating Long Trail Day on Saturday, Sept. 10.

The section’s hike leaders will lead four different hikes, covering the entire section from Emily Proctor trailhead to the Sucker Brook trailhead. These hikes are of varying levels of difficulty and start at different times, but they all will end by 3:30 p.m. Those interested in hiking with the club can find details and leaders’ contact information on the club’s website calendar at The group will end the day — and replace some burned calories — with a celebration at Drop-In Brewing in Middlebury.

GMC Bread Loaf Section is helping to fundraise this year, as they have in the past, to generate revenue to support the Long Trail. Find a link to the club’s fundraising team’s page “BreadLoaf Loafers” by going

Everyone is invited to join the hiking celebration and experience the Long Trail’s beauty.
