This year’s annual North Country Trail Association’s (NCTA) Celebration will be held in Marquette July 27th  through July 29th.  Hosting this time of celebration, along with the partnership of Northern Michigan University’s School of Health & Human Performance, are the five Upper Peninsula Chapters of the NCTA: Ni-Miikanaake, Peter Wolfe, North Country Trail Hikers, Superior Shoreline & Hiawatha Shore-to-Shore. NCTA members, volunteers & hikers from across the seven states are encouraged to come & be a part of this activity-packed weekend. Participate in guided hikes & enjoy engaging programs & activities revolving around recreating outdoors, & especially on the North Country National Scenic Trail (NCNST). The NCNST (more commonly referred to as the North Country Trail or NCT) winds roughly 4,600 miles across seven states, from New York to North Dakota, making it the longest National Scenic Trail in the country.  Every region, every stretch, offers unique &inspiring vistas, & the sections through the Upper Peninsula of Michigan are no exception. This year’s NCTA Celebration offers opportunities for locals & visitors to join others on guided hikes through northern hardwoods & towering pines, along stretches of beautiful Lake Superior coastline, & to the top of rock outcroppings offering 360-degree views. The hikes range from easy to difficult, & participants can choose from a variety of lengths, as short as 1 mile to as long as 14! Thursday, Friday, & Saturday will offer multiple, unique hikes which visitors can choose from. The celebration also offers some incredible programs & non-hiking activities, giving visitors a chance to relax, socialize, & become involved in the story of the longest National Scenic Trail in the country. On Friday afternoon, participants are encouraged to choose from an assortment of intriguing & informative break-out sessions to learn more about the NCT, the NCTA, management, & recreation from professionals & individuals with an experience & desire to share their knowledge & passions. To take a break from hiking, or to simply get out & do some additional exploration, those attending the celebration have the opportunity to register for pre-scheduled non-hiking activities, like visiting the Chocolay Raptor Center or touring the Maritime Museum & Lighthouse. You can also choose a variety of on-your-own activities to dive into, from Blueberry Fest, Art on the Rocks and the Outback Art Fair to relaxing at some of Marquette’s city parks on the shores of Lake Superior.  Registration is available online.
