I Hike Vermont: The Green Mountain Club Story
Vermont is the home of and destination for passionate hikers.
Lenny's is proud to tell the story of Vermont's most cherished and irreplaceable resource. For over 110 years The Green Mountain Club has protected and maintained our Green Mountains and Vermont's Long Trail System. Thank you to their hard-working team of staff and volunteers. Follow them on Instagram @GreenMountainClub for free hiking recommendations, workshops, trail updates, and a hiking community.
We're partnering up with the Green Mountain Club again - this time with an exclusive t-shirt! $10 from each t-shirt sold will be donated to the Green Mountain Club to help preserve and protect Vermont's natural resources and hiking trails, like the Long Trail. Help us in our continued support of the club and the great state of Vermont with this one-of-a-kind t-shirt, only available at Lenny's!
Spring of 2021, we teamed up with Darn Tough Vermont Socks to create limited-edition Green Mountain Club hiking socks. Over 1,400 pairs of socks were released exclusively at our stores in mid-March and the vast majority sold in the first few weeks.
To show our support, we donated $5.00 from each pair sold to the Green Mountain Club.
This donation would not have been possible without each and every one of you who helped us support this great cause!
"Both Lenny's and Darn Tough are natural and supportive partners for the Green Mountain Club, whose mission is to make the Green Mountains play a larger role in the life of the people," said Mike DeBonis, Executive Director of GMC. "With these special edition high-quality hiking socks, Lenny's is helping outfit Vermont hikers with the gear they need to enjoy the mountains, and their generous support of the Green Mountain Club helps us manage, maintain, and steward over 500 miles of trails for current and future generations of hikers."
The GMC is dedicated to maintaining, managing, and protecting Vermont's historic Long Trail, Appalachian Trail, and the Kingdom Heritage Trails in the Northeast Kingdom, and advocating for hiking opportunities in Vermont. Every year more than 1,000 volunteers work so that future generations will enjoy the 500-mile Long Trail System. Contact the Green Mountain Club to learn more about the GMC or to become a member.
