What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in attending hikes on or would like to volunteer to help build, maintain, and/or promote the North Country Trail along its length from Zoar, OH to Alpha Pass at McConnell's Mill State Park in PA. An ArcGIS Map of the NCT can be found here http://bit.ly/2wcr4QF

The Wampum Chapter is a part of the North Country National Scenic Trail Association. We plan a variety of activities - Monthly hikes along our route and work sessions to maintain our current pathway and build new off-road sections of the NCT. We also schedule outreach events to promote this great community asset. Volunteers with all interests and abilities are welcome to join us as you can and want to. All help and levels of participation are appreciated. Hope to see you on the North Country Trail!

The North Country Trail Association Wampum Chapter values just, diverse, equitable, and inclusive trail experiences. We are committed to these principles for everyone’s enjoyment of the North Country National Scenic Trail. We strive to better include those who experience barriers to trails by prioritizing equitable solutions to ensure all can connect to and care for the Trail in a way that is meaningful for them.
