This Chapter has the awesome responsibility for developing and maintaining the North Country National Scenic Trail in the state of Minnesota where another Chapter or affiliate doesn’t exist.  They currently maintain a 40-mile segment within the Chippewa National Forest from near Walker east to the Boy River crossing on St. Hwy 200.


Members of this chapter come from around the state, but with a meeting point in the twin cities area. This chapter’s mission is to do outreach in the Twin Cities and support new chapters which will be located closer to the trail in northern Minnesota.

It would be possible to get lost here… lost only in the beauty.
