North Country Trail Association

Support the Trail, Support the Work

Posted: October 26, 2020


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. If you have a desire to help, we can help you find an opportunity. Read through the NCTA Chapter Leadership Handbook for more details of volunteer opportunities. Find out what Chapters are near you, then follow their events calendars or Facebook pages to connect.
