The NCTA Allegheny National Forest Chapter will hold its annual Allegheny 100 Hiking Challenge (A-100) June 7-9, 2024. The adventure covers a 100-mile stretch of the North Country National Scenic Trail in Pennsylvania’s Allegheny National Forest. Hikers will climb over rocky, rolling hills and pass through beautiful, hemlock-lined stream valleys. This year, the hikers will travel from north to south, beginning at the Route 346 Willow Bay trailhead.

The A-100 is not a race, but an individual challenge of stamina, determination, and resilience. Hikers can choose to traverse 100, 75, 50, or 25 miles in a 50-hour time period. This challenge is for anyone who wants to test themself against the trail. The A-100 is unsupported, meaning there are no first aid or water stations. Hikers are responsible for supplying their own food, drinks, and equipment. Cell phone reception is spotty along this length of trail, too. Everyone is encouraged to “hike their own hike,” moving at their preferred pace and resting when necessary.

Registration is open from Friday, March 8 to Friday, March 15. The cost is $80, non-refundable. The event will be limited to 200 participants. Registered participants will park at their chosen finish point and get a shuttle to the start of the event (PA Route 346 Willow Bay trailhead).
