Welcome to the North Country Trail Association’s Hike 100 Challenge.
We designed the Hike 100 Challenge as a means to help you meet your goals. Maybe you want to explore the outdoors, spend time with your family, make new trail friends, or just see how far you can go. Whatever your goals are, Hike 100 is the motivation you need.
The only rule is to complete your 100 miles on the North Country Trail. And good news: There are 4,800 miles to choose from! Visit the same one mile 100 times over or explore 100 unique miles. Choose your own adventures.
We offer plenty of resources to help you succeed: Free maps, Chapter group hike experiences, a welcome packet to help you track mileage, and much more – including amazing support from fellow trail users through the NCT Community Facebook group.
The NCTA is able to ship patches to U.S. addresses only. If you are an international participant/finisher, we recommend you have stateside family or friends claim your patch, and then coordinate mailing it on to you.
