North Country Trail Association

Training and Resources

The NCTA is dedicated to providing our volunteers with the most comprehensive and accurate information needed to build, maintain and promote the North Country Trail.

We provide frequent in-person trainings throughout our eight states covering trail skills and Crew Leadership. Our Volunteer Resource Center is also home to a number of educational videos and resources, including the Handbook for Trail Maintenance, Design and Construction.

Please visit the Volunteer Resource Center for detailed guidance on topics beyond trail design, construction and management as well, such as marketing and outreach, and volunteer management.
