Trail Overview:

North Country Trail in Sheyenne River Valley

The trail meanders through the Sheyenne Valley across rolling hills, forest, prairie, and through Valley City.  Amenities along the trail include backcountry campsites, campgrounds, public recreation areas, tourist information sites, and supply stores.  The trail also crosses a number of natural, historic, and cultural attractions.

Certified segments include the Sheyenne State Forest, Fort Ransom State Park, Kathryn to Clausen Springs Recreation Area, Valley City and Lake Ashtabula. Work is underway by the Sheyenne River Valley Chapter of the North Country Trail Association to develop additional trail to connect the existing segments. If you would like to enjoy the trail or help us to build or maintain the trail, we encourage you to contact us to be notified of our monthly chapter events and periodic trail work days. We hope to see you on the trail!
