North Country GeoTrail Program - Starts 6/1/11

Postby SnowXRacer on Sun May 08, 2011 9:47 am

There is a new GeoTrail program starting June 1st, 2011 up in PA, near the Geowoodstock area. This would take many multiple trips, but for those that love to hike, this sounds like it would be a great challenge: ... eturnid=59

"The North Country National Scenic Trail Geotrail (NCT Geotrail) is a collaborative effort among the North Country Trail Association (NCTA), the Allegheny National Forest Chapter (ANF chapter) of the NCTA and There are 100 individual caches, hidden approximately a mile apart on the ANF chapter section of the NCT from the New York border north of PA 346 trailhead to the PA 66 trailhead south of Marienville, Pennsylvania.

Each cache is unique and separate and can be logged individually. If you want to earn a commemorative NCT 2011 Medallion, you will need to find 50 of the 100 caches and get the hidden code word written on the inside of the lid of each cache. There is a coder sheet you can download on the cache pages. Find the cache, get the code word, write it down on your coder sheet, and once you get 50 caches, you can submit it to the ANF Chapter communications director for verification. If the codes match, you will receive your Medallion. There are only 100 Medallions being offered, so first come first served.

Everyone who participates in the NCT Geotrail is encouraged to become a member of the NCTA to support the work building Americas longest premier national scenic hiking trail. We hope you enjoy your adventure along the NCT in the Allegheny National Forest and join our effort to maintain, improve and promote the trail.
