Once again, the North Country Trail and NCTA will be represented by the Star of the North Chapter at this weekend’s Outdoor Adventure Expo hosted by Midwest Mountaineering in Minneapolis, MN. We’ll be “next door” to the Border Route Trail Association and Kekekabic Trail Club and close to the Superior Hiking Trail Association. There will be numerous other outdoor non-profit organizations and businesses there (including our sister National Scenic Trail organization the Ice Age Trail Alliance). If you’re “in the neighborhood,” stop by and say “Hi!”
You might also want to check out one or more of the following presentations…
