Thousands of volunteers build, maintain, protect and promote the North Country Trail every day, and the Association strives to provide the best resources to the volunteers. NCTA Chapters and Affiliate organizations are established across the eight Trail states, constantly hosting work days, group hikes and more.

There are countless opportunities to get involved or expand these efforts. Build and maintain trail, lead a hike, represent the NCTA at an event, contribute written content or photography, join Chapter Leadership, educate groups about the Trail and the NCTA. Find out what Chapters are near you, then follow their events calendars or Facebook pages to connect.
