Champlain Area Trails (CATS) is putting the final touches on a new hiking/skiing trail that will be an important link in the system of trails connecting Westport to Essex, NY. If you’re interested in being part of the creation of “Farm and Forest Trail,” then learn where and when to be there below!
Please join us for an Earth Day Trail Project on Saturday afternoon, April 20 at 12:30 pm. This will be a “pick-up sticks hike” on the new Field and Forest Trail between Wadhams and the Bobcat Trail. We’ll be picking up sticks because snow covered the ground and hid fallen branches when we created the trail. This will be a great project for the whole family so please come out for a nice spring hike to enjoy the walk, get the sticks off the trail, and re-cut the little “nubs” of already-cut saplings closer to the ground.
We’ll meet in Wadhams at the Dogwood Bakery so you can stock up on their wonderful baked goods before setting out. Please bring loppers, gloves and hand saws if you have them; otherwise we’ll have tools for you. Volunteers like you maintain the CATS trails, enabling residents and visitors to enjoy our amazing Champlain Valley environment. (Chris Maron CATS Executive Director)
