What we're about


This Meetup is for the Pennsylvania Chapters and affiliated organizations of the North Country National Scenic Trail to invite people to hike the trail with them in Pennsylvania, and to invite NCT enthusiasts to the meetings, trail work sessions, outreach events, and trail-related social activities that they plan. All are welcome to join in.

Although the Meetup is geographically based in Clarion, about in the center of the state's trail range, volunteers from the Allegheny National Forest, Clarion, Butler, and Wampum NCTA chapters, as well as the Davis Hollow Cabin at Moraine, the Butler Outdoor Club, and the Rachel Carson Trails Conservancy will all be posting information about their planned activities.

Three hundred miles of the North Country National Scenic Trail wind their way through Pennsylvania, from the New York to the Ohio borders. You can find a good general description of the route of the NCT through the state, as well as links to maps and the chapters' websites here on the NCTA's Pennsylvania page https://northcountrytrail.org/trail/states/pennsylvania/
