The Allegheny National Forest Chapter of the North Country Trail will hold the fourth annual Allegheny 100 Challenge June 7-9. This ultimate hiking challenge is an endurance challenge, backpacking without outside support. The challenge is not a race against others, but a test of an individual's stamina, determination and resilience. There are no first aid stations, nor watering stations along the route. The adventure will take place on a 100-mile stretch of the North Country National Scenic Trail that meanders through the rolling hills and stream valleys of the Allegheny National Forest. As was the case last year, hikers will travel south to north.
