CATS Grand Hike
May 14 @ 1:00 pm
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 the Bionic Band from Saranac Lake and food from DaCy Meadow Farm.
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 of my 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 to the CATS website www.ChamplainAreaTrails.com.
