Mile Makers Club

Join the Mile Makers Club to watch your gift develop the Trail.

Mile Makers are individuals and families seeking a cost-effective way to make a long-term impact for the North Country National Scenic Trail (NCNST) and the North Country Trail Association. This monthly giving program allows your support to truly go the distance when it comes to maintaining every mile of the NCNST.

  • $9/month trains one NCTA sawyer or hike leader in CPR and First Aid.
  • $13/month equips two NCTA Trail Adopters with hand saws for trail maintenance.
  • $18/month builds seven feet of boardwalk.
  • $26/month trains one volunteer as a NCTA Crew Leader.

You can also customize your monthly amount for limitless possibilities. Supporters will receive an exclusive Mile Makers sticker and a custom NCTA carabiner.

The 4,800 miles of North Country National Scenic Trail did not appear suddenly, nor all at the same time. It was built incrementally by many hands, minds, and hearts. It is now maintained, expanded, rerouted, and protected mile by mile by dedicated volunteers – sometimes as a group, sometimes individually. One person – one supporter – can make miles of difference.
