Hike the Lake!WWOverlook

Champlain Area Trails (CATS) offers trails for hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, birding, and picnicking in the Champlain Valley of New York State’s Adirondack Park. We are also an accredited land trust working to save the Valley’s natural features, farmland, clean water and scenic vistas.

The CATS Harvest Moon and Ferry-to Fairgrounds Hikes, featured at the recent Adirondack Harvest Festival, were a great success.  Brian Mann from North Country Public Radio attended the Harvest Moon Hike.  Click HERE to see photos and listen to his audio “postcard” about the event.

CATS was recently featured on Mountain Lake PBS Television!


CATS is one of just 317 land trusts that has been awarded accreditation. Accredited land trusts are authorized to display this seal, indicating that they meet national standards for excellence, uphold the public trust and ensure that conservation efforts are permanent. The seal is a mark of distinction in land conservation that we are proud to display.


Check out one of our “VIRTUAL HIKES.”  (With special thanks to CATS summer interns James Gilmore for filming and Theo Bakewell for editing, and to Taylor Haskins for composing and performing the music.)
