Hanging Mountain Fundraising Campaign

In 2019, the Western Mass Climbers’ Coalition and the Ragged Mountain Foundation accepted a $120,000 Climbing Conservation loan from the Access Fund to purchase the land for Hanging Mountain. Please consider supporting our campaign to raise the funds to pay back the Access Fund loan and to build critical infrastructure, such as a driveway, parking lot, kiosk, and trails.
