NCT Hike 100 Challenge!

In 2016, the National Park Service is celebrating their centennial anniversary. To commemorate this special year, the North Country Trail Association will be promoting a Hike 100 Centennial challenge. Anyone who hikes 100 miles on the North Country Trail during the calendar year of 2016, in aggregate or all at once, will be eligible for a special patch and certificate.

The Onondaga Chapter ADK will be offering hikes to ADK Members throughout 2016 that will qualify for the Challenge – look for designation ‘NCT 100’ in the Outings Schedule.  Please visit the following website for more details and to sign up:

Hike 100 Challenge – North Country Trail Association

The North Country Trail Association will be offering a “digital toolkit” that people can sign up to download which will include hiking tips and fun ways to log their miles.

The 100 miles do not have to be unique miles. The North Country Trail Association wants to make this accessible to as many people as possible and get people out on the Trail. If someone hikes the same 5 miles over and over to equal 100, that will count!
