CHAMPLAIN AREA TRAILS GRAND HIKE ON MAY 14
After a two-year hiatus, Champlain Area Trails (CATS) will present a “shorter” Grand Hike on May 14 that makes a 6-mile loop on CATS trails through the fields and forests of Westport and ends at the Ledge Hill Brewery where there will be a “brew party” featuring a local band, food from DaCy Meadow Farm, drinks and fun.
“We are so pleased to start doing Grand Hikes again,” said Chris Maron, CATS executive director. “With so many uncertainties, we chose to keep it simple—to have it be an afternoon walk beginning at the Essex County Fairgrounds in Westport, going on a number of CATS trails, then on easy roads through Westport and ending at Ledge Hill Brewery which is right next to the fairgrounds. That makes for convenient parking for all those who want to enjoy our family-friendly trails and for those coming from farther distances.”
Hikers can begin hiking between 1:00 and 2:00. Participants can gauge their speed in walking six miles with the time they want to arrive at the Brewery. “Some friends recently hiked the route and it took them about 2.5 hours,” said Maron. “So, if you think you’ll take longer, start at 1:00. If you are faster, start closer to 2:00.”
Everyone is welcome for the hike and brew party, which non-hikers can also attend. There is a fee of $25/person and $50/family to register for the hike by May 10. After that date, the fee is $30/person and $60/family. Children under 18 are free. The registration fee includes one free drink per person. The brew party is free. Additional food and drinks are pay-as-you-go. To register, go HERE.
