The Heritage (HTG) Chapter is responsible for developing, maintaining, protecting and promoting the North Country National Scenic Trail (NCNST) across Iron County and eastern Ashland County. Our chapter’s responsibility begins at the Michigan-Wisconsin state line and continues west to the middle of Copper Falls State Park at the junction of the spur trail to the Sandstone Ledges Backpacker Campsite.
The Heritage Chapter has historically had the bulk of our members live in the Milwaukee area and areas between Milwaukee and Iron County. However, we also have a number of more local members and are always looking for more. You can be our newest member by joining NCTA / HTG.
Since our chapter began, we have focused on maintaining our existing miles of trail within the Iron County Forest. However, in recent years we have embarked upon completing several miles of new trail lying east of Wren Falls. The HTG chapter organizes a variety of activities, including a General Membership Meetings, an early spring hike to explore new locations for the trail, a National Trails Day program, and several group trail maintenance work days.
