The National Park Service (NPS) - North Country National Scenic Trail (NCT) proposes to construct approximately 18-miles of new hiking trail in Itasca County, Minnesota (hereafter the Proposed Action). The Proposed Action would be connected on each end to the existing NCT. It would be a natural surface footpath that would include NCT signage, structures for passage over wet ground or water, gravel parking lots, and primitive backcountry campsites. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to create new hiking trail that would meet the goals and purpose of the North Country National Scenic Trail Route Adjustment Act (HR 1216), the NCT, and the National Trails System. The Proposed Action is needed to improve the NCT route in Itasca County and eliminate approximately 12-miles of existing NCT roadwalk on Highway 6. The NPS seeks to exemplify the best scenery and variety that Northeastern Minnesota has to offer, as well as provide for the enjoyment of outdoor areas and world-class walking and hiking experiences.
