|The North Country Trail is America's longest National Scenic Trail stretching 4,600 miles from New York to North Dakota linking 7 states, 10 National Forests, and more than 150 public lands providing year around recreational opportunities. In Michigan, there are about 1,150 miles of the NCT; about 750 in Lower Michigan and 450 Miles of NCT in the Upper Peninsula. The Peter Wolfe Chapter has about 120 miles of trail stretching from M64 in the West, to East of US41 at Long Lake near the Craig Lake Forest.|

Some PWC Trail issues of Note:
* Please note, PWC volunteer trail workers sometimes use temporary blue ribbon on trees as trail confidence markers when we are working on the trail and do not have enough blazing supplies with us.
* There are sections of our trail that have been marked for logging. The trees that are marked to be cut have been painted with the exact same blue color as the NCT Blue Blazes!! (usually several diagonal stripes per tree) So be very careful to look for the sharp 2 inch by 6 inch vertical paint or plastic blazes, blue ribbons or the old blue plastic triangle blazes! We have done our best to make the trail obvious when we have found these logging tree markings this season, but there may be some places that get marked for logging after we have worked there.
* There are a number of old and new logging trails, critter trails or ATV trails crossing the NCT, keep a look out for the blue blazes or blue ribbons to stay on trail!
Options for winter
