The Wampum Chapter’s monthly business meeting and social gathering is held at the Wampum Junction Train Station on the third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Chapter volunteers meet on a regular basis all year round for trail building and maintenance sessions, organized hikes, and community outreach events. We also gather several times a year at various locations along the Trail and in our local communities for hot dog roasts, potluck dinners, and other social events that don’t involve a hike or doing any work – just having some North Country Trail fellowship.
We would love to have like-minded individuals join us in our mission to build, maintain, protect and promote the North Country National Scenic Trail in Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio. Contact the Chapter via email or follow the Chapter on social media to join up with our diverse group of volunteers.
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 Butler County Chapter, Clarion 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.
