So you've been to all the huts, hiked the Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia, and visited the most distant AMC shelters. But have you seen our main office at 5 Joy Street in Boston? If the answer is no, then your adventures are not yet complete! Our location since 1922, the building is not only home to our conservation, education, books, magazine, and other departments, but also has plenty of resources and activities of interest to the general public.

Whether you're an AMC member or someone with an interest in the outdoors, there are plenty of reasons to stop by and check out our reference area, library, and more.

Reference Area
Need to take a look at some trail maps or want to learn more about the Appalachian Mountain Club? Our reference area provides weather reports for Mount Washington and Pinkham Notch, a collection of maps covering the entire Appalachian Trail, guidebooks, and information on Boston. All of the AMC maps and guidebooks are available for purchase and you can purchase or renew an AMC membership.

Library & Archives
The AMC Library provides access to historical and current information relating to the Club and outdoor activities. In short, the Library ensures that tomorrow’s “history” is captured and preserved today. Learn more >>
