Donor Membership

Becoming a member of the North Country Trail Association has never been easier!

The Association is built upon donor memberships, which means your annual support qualifies you as a member. This is true if you are a first-time donor or if you are renewing your membership. Making a gift is the first step.

Membership has its perks: As an annual member, you will receive a one-year subscription to the North Star magazine, timely news about the Trail, and a powerful voice as we fight to protect the Trail. A membership to the Association gives you access to North Country Trail experiences throughout the year. You are invited to join a local Chapter or become an at-large member. Either way, you have an important role in our community, and are welcome to join a hike or workday, or connect at any time.

Your membership makes an impact! Thanks to you, the North Country Trail Association will continue to provide and support programs designed to challenge Trail users and connect people to the outdoors. Together we will build and maintain this National Scenic Trail, and together we will protect it – for today and future generations. It all begins with a gift. 

Join today. Donation memberships begin at $20 and gifts of $100 or more will be recognized in the Association’s Annual Report. Members of the Founders Circle will receive special invitations to the Founders Circle Reception at the Annual Celebration. Make an even bigger impact as a sustaining member through the monthly giving option.

Visit to make your gift. After, you will be routed to membership information, including a listing of the Association’s Chapters.

Thank you for being a part of something amazing: the North Country Trail Association community.
