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.
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.
Recently Gail Lowe completed the thru hike across the entire trail as the first woman in U.S. history.
Watch for Gail’s story also featured as part of the upcoming series IW Inspiring Women on http://emmapalova.com
Before hiking the NCT, Lowe also walked the entire length of the Appalachian Trail twice and the Pacific Trail and solo trails in Alaska.
Lowe’s trail name was Chosen Hiker.
