Now is the time to organize yourself and your family or friends and hike the North Country Trail (NCT). The event is the week of Sept. 20-26.

The goal is to get feet on NCT in Hubbard County and beyond during that week. Did you know there are 170 miles of trail between Fergus Falls and Remer waiting for you?

“Can we do it? Yes, we can. Now is the time to get out and go,” said Bruce Johnson, an NCT volunteer.

Please share where you hiked, how many were with you and a few words about the hike. For example: “Hiked the Waboose Loop trail north of Nevis this last Monday. Saw 10 others in three groups on the trail. Trail in very good condition.”
