The North Country describes the extreme northern frontier of the American state of New York, bordering Lake Ontario, the Saint Lawrence River (across from the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec), Vermont, and the Adirondack Mountains. Generally speaking, the North Country is understood to be that portion of northern Upstate New York which lies outside the Adirondack Park and consists of mostly level lands or Adirondack foothills, but is not within the Adirondack range itself. The region is the most sparsely populated, but also one of the geographically largest, in New York State. At the 2000 census, the population of all six counties was around 422,000.

The New York State Department of Transportation defines this as part of the Adirondack Region, which includes the counties of Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lewis, St. Lawrence, and Warren. [1]

The North Country Trail, more formally known as the "North Country National Scenic Trail," is a 4,600-mile long-distance trail being developed and is proposed to begin at Crown Point, New York on Lake Champlain and traverses New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North Dakota.
