We will construct new North Country National Scenic Trail (NCNST) in New York’s Adirondack Mountains. Adirondack Mountain Club and North Country Trail Association are offering a volunteer work week on the Jones Hill section of the NCNST in Hoffman Notch Wilderness August 12-16, 2024.

No prior skills or experience are needed. Skills training and tools will be provided.

We will be putting the finishing touches on the new NCT section over Jones Hill in Hoffman Notch Wilderness. The plan is for the ADK Procrew to complete the new trail down from the summit on the east side. Our volunteer group will be putting finishing touches on benching from Platt Brook uphill toward the summit, posting markers, and checking and improving drainage.

Volunteers will provide their own food and lodging. Schroon Lake Village offers many motel and B&B opportunities. Limited complimentary camping is available on a first-come/first- served basis.

Join like-minded trail folks and become involved literally on the ground floor of this project while soaking up the Adirondack ambience. Join us for all 5 days or a day or two.

Space is limited. Reservations are required. For details and application procedure contact: Mary Coffin at or click here. and scroll all the way toward the bottom for Jones Hill project.

We look forward to seeing you on the trail!
