In collaboration with the Hamilton County Northville-Placid Traill 100 Anniversary Celebration, we are sponsoring several ways you can hike for a cause along the NPT!

Registration is $10 per person.

All those who pre-register by August 19, will receive a limited-edition NPT 100 Anniversary patch for their participation. Patches will be handed out at the event. 

AJ Smullen Fund: Alexander John "AJ" Smullen was born on June 21, 2009, and passed away on March 6, 2024. AJ loved Coca-Cola, dogs, antiquing, wearing flannel, and being outside. He wanted to go to forestry school and had just completed a hunter safety course. He touched many people’s hearts during his time with us here and is the namesake of a scholarship for higher education in an outdoor career.

A portion of the proceeds will be presented to The Alexander John "AJ" Smullen Scholarship Fund – a scholarship for higher education in an outdoor career.
