The Clarion County Chapter is responsible for developing, promoting and maintaining the North Country Trail’s pathway in and around Clarion County, Pennsylvania. The Chapter’s section offers 96 miles of adventure into the Pennsylvania countryside. The Chapter has monthly hikes with a good turnout, a group workday once a month, canoe and kayak trips on the Clarion River, and organized picnics and cookouts at our shelters. We would love to have you join us for one or any of our monthly events.We also are always in great need of people who want to get out and help build and maintain this national treasure. Working on the North Country National Scenic Trail is an excellent opportunity for students, church groups and scouts looking for community service opportunities or projects.
The Hike PA 50 is back for 2021! The Pennsylvania Trail Council of the NCTA is hosting a “PA Hike 50” challenge with a commemorative patch for those who hike 50 miles on the North Country Trail in the state during the calendar year. There is not a unique-miles requirement, nor do participants need to hike in the different NCTA Chapter’s ranges to qualify for this award, so out-and-backs and multiple hikes on the same mile of Trail will qualify for the award! Visit the pages for the Wampum Chapter, Butler County Chapter, and Allegheny National Forest Chapter for maps and information about the Trail through the state. Please use #PAHike50 to share your adventures on social media. When finished, send along a photo or two and fill out the PA Hike 50 Completion Form.
