Northern terminus of the Link Trail west of Tuscarora Lake to the Oneida/Herkimer county line
The Central New York Chapter of the North Country Trail Association has approximately 140 members. We are passionate about maintaining the NCNST to an excellent condition for hikers, and providing interpretive experiences on the Trail through our recreational hikes and activities. By exploring, building, and maintaining the NCNST and the Link Trail in Central New York we play a significant role in building a part of America’s longest hiking trail. One of our goals is to attract and retain membership, both in terms of number and diversity. Volunteers are a major element of the North Country Trail and Link Trail. There are volunteer jobs in administration or in the field. On the Trail, volunteers build, relocate and design trail sections, build and repair trail structures, and install trail markers and signage. Volunteers can join route scouting committees, become Trail Adopters, organize events or lead hikes. Volunteers assist year-round in all areas: Publications, fundraising, grant writing, membership development and more. Please join and volunteer with us!
