CHAMPLAIN AREA TRAILS’ MISSION is to create a network of hiking/skiing trails in New York’s Champlain Valley that link communities, connect people to nature, and promote economic vitality; and as an accredited land trust, to protect habitat, farmland, clean water, and scenic vistas.

Grand Opening of the High Point Trail this Sunday!

Join us Sunday, June 25, at 1:00 p.m. and celebrate the grand opening of the High Point Trail in Willsboro.

About two miles long, the High Point Trail has two loops which wind through deep forest, along rock walls, and past several ephemeral (seasonal) ponds and wetlands that provide habitat for a variety of amphibians, including the bright orange juvenile newts called “efts.” It features the highest point on Willsboro Point which isn’t a mountain—it’s simply the top of small rise on the fairly level peninsula surrounded by Lake Champlain.

Meet at the High Point Trailhead on Point Road, about .6 mile north of Frisbie Road. Parking is available along the road (please pull completely off the roadway).

For more information, call the CATS office at 518-962-2287.

CATS is one of just a few hundred 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.
