The North Country Trail community is gathering for 2023 Celebration from September 27 through October 1 in Chestertown, New York to learn new skills, become inspired, and of course, hike!
The North Country Trail Association works with one or a few local Chapters to host Celebration in a different location each year. This is a multi-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.
2023 Celebration will be in Chestertown, New York: a wonderful access point to both the Adirondack and Green Mountains. The NCNST offers a multitude of hiking experiences across its 700-mile segment in New York and 40-mile segment in Vermont. The NCTA Central New York Chapter and multiple Affiliate organizations build, maintain, protect, and promote this National Scenic Trail in these two states. Affiliates and partners include the Finger Lakes Trail Conference, Adirondack Mountain Club, Green Mountain Club, and Middlebury Area Land Trust.
