North Country National Scenic Trail

National Park Service

The National Park Service administers the North Country National Scenic Trail, providing management oversight to the entire Trail by working with the federal agencies, state and local governments, private organizations, landowners and land users, and providing guidance to NCTA as a partner.

The NPS provides funding for trail projects, planning and decisions on trail routing, trail tools, supplies and signage for volunteers, trail certification guidelines and volunteer support through the VIP program.
