We are the Jordan Valley 45° Chapter of the NCTA. Our Chapter is a great group of volunteers who maintain and develop the Trail. We work with area landowners as well as local, state and federal government agencies in an effort to advance the NCT in our region. The Chapter was previously known as the Tittabawasse Chapter founded by Jerry Allen in 1998. In 2012, the Chapter was renamed for two of its most prominent features: the beautiful Jordan River Valley and the only crossing of the 45th Parallel (halfway point between the Equator and North Pole) of the entire 4,800-mile North Country Trail. Through the sweat equity of our Chapter, the Jordan Valley 45° section has seen dramatic improvements in our short history. On the fun side, we frequently host area hikes, work projects, special events (National Trail Day, guest speakers, etc.) and regular meetings. Join us to find others who love the outdoors and the Trail!
