COLLABORATION: The Trail Unites Us

In 1978, the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail was designated to provide for high-quality, scenic, primitive hiking, horseback riding, and non-motorized recreational experiences and to conserve natural, historical and cultural resources along the divide. Snaking 3,100 miles from Canada to Mexico, the CDNST is only 78% complete. The largest unfinished section is the Montana and Idaho section at only 58% complete!

With dedicated volunteers and agency partners, Montana Wilderness Association is working to complete the CDNST, and we need YOUR help to get the job done. Please check out the volunteer opportunities we have each summer, or make a contribution to support our volunteers in the field. Together we can complete the CDT!
