*Febrary 5, 2014: We mourn the passing of Bruce Klink, one of our founders. Bruce and Steven Kellogg initiated the creation of CATS when they were in the Charlotte, North Carolina airport in 2006. Both were reading Wandering Home by Bill McKibben where he wrote about passing through our Champlain Valley towns of Essex, Westport, and Elizabethtown. They agreed that this area needed a network of hiking trails so they called several people together and thus began Champlain Area Trails. Now, in 2014, we have over 35 miles of new trails and a listing of over 40 local trails. We will miss you Bruce. You have made a difference in this world.
