Wisconsin State Park System State North Country Trail Areas

Black River.

The Black River runs through a North Country Trail property near Pattison State Park.

State North Country Trail Areas (SNCTAs) are lands purchased by the DNR for the North Country National Scenic Trail under the authority of s. 23.09 (2)(d) 12., Stats., unless purchased as part of another department project. The primary purpose of State North Country Trail Areas is to permanently protect segments of the North Country Trail and the natural resources along it for present and future public use and enjoyment.

State North Country Trail Area maps

SNCTAs are open for hiking/walking. Some properties or portions of properties are open for hunting and trapping during the Wisconsin state parks hunting time frame. No hunting or trapping is allowed within 100 yards of the North Country National Scenic Trail on SNCTA properties. For more information, please see: Hunting and trapping in Wisconsin State Parks
