As the heart and soul of this organization, our volunteers are the most important part of our story.

There are many ways to volunteer for the North Country Trail Association, from maintaining the trail or leading hikes to stuffing envelopes and sending out newsletters. No matter what your skill or interest, we have an opportunity for you.
