GMC Unveils "Downloadable Hikes"
The Green Mountain Club is rolling out a series of digital trail guides accessible by computer, tablet or smartphone.
The club has been producing hiking guidebooks for nearly 100 years. Now it's "Downloadable Hikes" series will feature one new hike each week, available online for 99 cents each.
Starting with a sample download of Spruce Mountain in Plainfield, the series will highlight treks of varying difficulty and geography, combining some of Vermont's more popular destinations such as the Burrows Trail to Camels Hump with lesser-known trails like the Weathersfield trail up Mount Ascutney.
Those looking to buy the guides can pay with a credit card or PayPal.
