Happy 40th Birthday, North Country Trail!

Categories: General, News


On March 5, 1980, Congress designated the North Country Trail as a National Scenic Trail.

In the 40 years since, we have countless accomplishments to reflect on and take pride in. We’ve highlighted a few in this infographic, but please take a moment to read through our 2019 Trail Progress Report and keep an eye out for our 2019 Annual Report this spring, as well. (Here’s our 2018 Annual Report in the meantime.)

Thank you to our strong and growing community for your tireless support. What’s your favorite NCT memory or accomplishment? Share your stories and photos with us on Facebook and Instagram. Use @northcountrytrail to tag us. Together we hike it, build it, love it.
