You’re invited to a celebration of the North Country National Scenic Trail (NCNST), and all those who care for it and are interested in getting involved with the trails community. The North Country Trail Association (NCTA) coordinates this annual event, Celebration, that this year will take place September 27 through October 1 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.

A wide variety of activities are offered to Celebration participants, including many guided hiking opportunities, skills workshops, engaging presentations, and much more. Learn more, connect with the NCTA, and register at (That web page will be updated throughout 2023 as event details emerge.)
