Saturday, November 21: Take your pick of two CATS outings
This is the best season to make trails so please join the Bridge-Building Trail Project at the Wildway Passage Trail in Westport on Saturday morning, November 21 from 9 – 1 p.m. Help us in preparing and placing fallen cedar trees over the three brooks people cross while hiking and skiing. We will have the tools so just bring gloves, water, snacks, etc. Meet at the trailhead on Angier Hill Road. Please let us know if you will participate by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 518-962-2287.
Directions to Wildway Passage Trailhead: Angier Hill Road goes from Lakeshore Road, about 4 miles north of Westport, to Whallonsburg, where it ends at Whallons Bay Road just east of the RR crossing. The Trailhead is about 0.6 miles north of Lakeshore Road.
Moonlight Bonfire Hike
Early the same evening (Nov. 21) come out for a moonlight hike to a bonfire on Blueberry Hill in Elizabethtown. Maybe snow will brighten the trail and maybe not as we hike up the moonlit trail to the lean-to and the amazing view looking out over the lights of Elizabethtown. Bring water, a hot drink, or BYOB, we’ll provide the marshmallows and s’mores. Please register for this free hike by clicking here. We’ll meet at Lord Road Trailhead at 6:30.
Directions to Blueberry Hill Main Trailhead on Lord Road: From the blinking light in Elizabethtown, follow Water Street 0.5 miles to Cross Street. Turn right onto Cross Street and follow 0.1 mile to Roscoe Road. Turn left onto Roscoe Road and follow for 0.6 miles where Roscoe Road turns right. Continue straight onto Lord Road for another 0.2 miles to the Blueberry Hill Trailhead on the right.
CATS’s Hidden Quarry Trail was featured on North Country Public Radio. Click here to hear Brian Mann, NPR’s Adirondack Bureau Chief, describe his late fall hike. You can see the trail’s subtle beauty too. You’ll find the trail on Route 9N, about 4.5 miles south of Westport.
