I have run on the North Country Trail during a half marathon and full marathon, so I've traveled at least 30 miles of this moderately technical trail. The dense trees and ground cover create a wonderful backdrop for a spectacular experience in nature.

Very challenging parts on this trail. I'm fairly new to mountain biking so I'm sure if you're more seasoned you'd love this trail. Even though I'm a neophyte I enjoyed the trail. Great workout and beautiful views. We were kayaking from Hopendyl dam and used...More
