The Grand Hike on Champlain Area Trails will take participants along CATS trails and back roads from the Westport Hotel and Tavern in Westport, NY to the Essex Inn on the Adirondack Coast where they can join in celebrations in Essex. Learn more about The Grand Hike here. You can pre-register here. The entrance fee is $5/individual or $10/couple, family, or group.

The Grand Hike will end at the Essex Inn with a block party featuring the music of the Wadhams Waddlers. Take part in a restorative yoga class or a chair massage provided by Lake Champlain Yoga & Wellness, listen to live music, grab a drink and bite to eat at the Essex Inn, and much more! Including activities for children. Those who finish the entire hike will earn one free cocktail at the Inn.
