Walking on the North Country National Scenic Trail (NCT) through the Allegheny National Forest (ANF) is a wondrous experience. The ANF portion of the NCT is only a fraction of what is the longest of 11 National Scenic Trails. Three of those trails pass through Pennsylvania. There are more than 4,600 miles and more than 2,600 volunteer members supporting the trail systems. In the seven states through which the NCT wanders, there are several chapters that maintain and promote this northern trail. Along with routine maintenance and special projects, there are also highlighted events and increasing public awareness goals, all ongoing jobs.
