Special Events

Annual Celebration. The North Country Trail community gathers in a different Trail state each year. Celebration offers networking, skills workshops, volunteer training, inspiring presentations, and ample hiking opportunities.

North Country National Scenic Trail DayEach year, hundreds of thousands of volunteers come together on the fourth Saturday in September, National Public Lands Day, to assist with various projects designed to restore and enhance public parks, forests, waterways and more. North Country National Scenic Trail Day coincides with National Public Lands Day each year, to bring awareness, use and volunteerism specifically to the longest National Scenic Trail in America: the North Country Trail.

Allegheny 100 ChallengeEach June, the Allegheny National Forest Chapter in Pennsylvania hosts an unsupported endurance hiking challenge with no timekeepers, aid stations or finish line, other than the one hikers set for themselves. The A-100 challenges hikers to traverse 25, 50, 75 or 100 miles along the North Country Trail through the Allegheny National Forest in 50 hours.

National Trails DayOrganized by the American Hiking Society, National Trails Day occurs each year on the first Saturday in June. North Country Trail Association Chapters host events like group hikes and workdays across the entire trail.
