NextGen Membership

Are you between ages 18-30?

When you join Appalachian Trail Conservancy, you can now “Pay Your Age!”

Our NextGen Membership gives you an opportunity to become an ATC member for a reduced price based entirely around your age. If you’re 25, you’ll pay just $25. When you turn 26, you’ll pay $26 to renew your membership. This continues until you turn 31, when you’ll move to our standard membership fee of $50. It’s that simple.

It can be tough to commit to expensive memberships and subscriptions. As a NextGen Member, you can give back to the Trail without breaking the bank.


NextGen Membership Benefits include:

  • Pay Your Age instead of the standard $50 membership fee
  • Subscription to the electronic version of A.T. Journeys, our quarterly member magazine
  • Premium 4-foot long Appalachian Trail map
  • Discounts in the Ultimate Trail Store
  • Invitations to exclusive events, hikes and other activities

Best of all, you’ll know you are doing your part to protect an irreplaceable national treasure – the Appalachian Trail!
