Re: North country trail

Years back we used the NCT as a prep for the scout troops backpacking trip to Alaska. We used the trail on the Allegheny National Forest. I don't know the length of your trip, but look at topo maps before you plan it out. "Your mileage may vary" depending on terrain.

Re: North country trail

i went from marienville almost to new york and it was amazing.

You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?

Re: North country trail

https://northcountrytrail.org/trail/ Blacksmith here is a link to the North country trail with lots of info In Ohio I read it is called the Buckeye Trail. It also is broken down into state trail segments. There are downloadable maps here also. The portion of the trail that passes through the Allegheny NF in Pa is a beautiful trail. Hope this helps. Just Google North Country Trail for good info.

Re: North country trail

The Black Forest Trail I believe is 44 miles and a loop trail. Some big ups and downs. 3 or 4 night hike.

Enjoy life and take a hike on the AT.
