North Country Trail Association

Annual Celebration

Join your North Country Trail Community this October 5-9 in Walker, Minnesota, to learn new skills, become inspired, and of course, hike!

Registration is open June 14 through September 14.

The North Country Trail Association works with one or a few local Chapters to host Celebration in a different location each year. This event is a multiple-day event that offers opportunities to explore the North Country National Scenic Trail in unique locations. Celebration allows you to network with trail enthusiasts from North Dakota to Vermont and beyond, attend skills workshops and volunteer training, and participate in engaging evening presentations. Together, let’s celebrate everything that makes our Trail Community special.


The NCTA, in collaboration with StoryCorps, is excited to announce the launch of a program to record and archive conversations about those who help develop, maintain, protect, promote, and use the Trail to build and sustain a welcoming Trail Community that offers safe, accessible, and comfortable outdoor experiences for everyone. StoryCorps will join NCTA for three onsite recording days at Celebration in October!
