Adopter Handbook for North County Trail

The North Country National Scenic Trail facilitates trail maintenance through a system of Trail Adopters who take responsibility for sections of trail. The NCTA Adopter Handbook notes that “A good trail experience is what gains support for the trail and ultimately increases membership.” The Handbook details standards for signs, blazes, tread, bridges, and campsites.
