Mission Statement

America has 11 National Scenic Trails, but after 60 years only the Appalachian National Scenic Trail has a right-of-way set aside for posterity. The other 10 trails have gaps subject to closure and dangerous road-walks. Many have access problems. Hiking Trails for America (HTA) has been formed to support permanent protection and continuity for all National Scenic Trails and to educate the general public in the use of foot trails for walking, hiking and backpacking.

Help Raise Awareness and Close the Gaps!

The North Country Trail Executive Director, Bruce Matthews, (recently retired) was kind enough to sit down and talk to our founder, Jim Kern, about his time at the NCT, the challenges of closing the trail gaps and the what the future looks like for hikers enjoying his beloved trail.
