The North Country National Scenic Trail
Stretching 4,600 miles through seven states, the North Country Trail is a premier hiking path that traverses, interprets and celebrates the unique natural, historic, cultural and ecological landscapes of America’s north country. The North Country Trail is administered by the National Park Service in concert with the North Country Trail Association through partnerships with local, state, and federal organizations and private landowners. Together, we plan, build and promote the North Country Trail.

The Western Terminus
To the west, the North Country Trail moves across the northern Great Plains serving up big skies, superb birding, and breathtaking sunsets before reaching the western terminus at Lake Sakakawea State Park, North Dakota.

The Eastern Terminus
The North Country Trail route begins here on the shores of Lake Champlain in Historic Crown Point, New York. The route heads west through the Adirondacks, along scenic canals in Central New York, and winds through the Finger Lakes.
