NORTH COUNTRY TRAIL
This new super-trail, which has National Scenic Trail status, is currently under construction. It will eventually run about 3,200 miles from New York to North Dakota. The New York portion will be about 520 miles long.
The eastern terminus of the trail is at Crown Point on Lake Champlain, in the Adirondacks. From there the trail crosses the Adirondack Park and heads southwest to hook up with the Finger Lakes Trail, which it follows for some 388 miles. The trail then enters Pennsylvania at Allegheny State Park.
Camping Regulations: Camping and campfires are allowed almost anywhere along the trail in the Adirondack Park and in state forests. Campsites should be at least 150 feet from streams, lakes, and the trail. A permit is required only to spend more than three nights at a site, and for groups of 10 or more. In other state parks and on private lands, camping and campfires are restricted to lean-tos and designated campsites.
