Establish, implement and communicate the program in your Trail Town.
A Trail Town is a community through which the North Country National Scenic Trail passes that supports hikers with services, promotes the Trail to its citizens, and embraces the Trail as a resource to be protected and celebrated. Trail Towns are built on a relationship between a town, the Trail and its local volunteers.
