The North Country National Scenic Trail is a premier footpath that stretches for about 4,600 miles linking communities, forests, and prairies across seven northern states. Already, more than 2100 miles have been certified off-road. Additional miles follow shared paths, and some road walks remain. When completed it will be the longest off-road hiking trail in the United States.

The section in western New York runs from Allegany State Park to Watkins Glen. During this stretch of the NCT, it shares the path with the Finger Lakes Trail. The trail is blazed white instead of the normal NCT blue during this stretch. We are unsure why the Finger Lakes Trail Conference has decided not to adopt the NCT blue. Look below for maps & descriptions of the NCT in Western New York.

For more information on this exciting trail please see the North Country Trail official website.
