North Country Trail

The North Country Trail Association with headquarters in Lowell, Michigan manages the 4,600 mile trail stretching across seven states from New York state to North Dakota.

North Country Trail

NCT winds its way through the Fallasburg Park.

The North Country National Scenic Trail (NCT) links scenic, natural, recreational, historic and cultural areas in the seven-state area. The trail can be both easy and challenging depending on the section.

It differs from the Appalachian, Pacific Crest and Continental Divide NSTs which follow mountain ranges, the North Country NCT traverses through a variety of environments i the northeastern and north central United States.
