March 30th, 2021

WESTPORT – Champlain Area Trails is excited to announce that they have received funding for the CATS Trail Maps Project from the Adirondack Foundation.

This project will allow CATS to update the individual trail maps on their website. CATS provides free paper maps to the public, a Northern Champlain Valley, and a Central Champlain edition.

“We’re very excited to receive this grant from the Adirondack Foundation,” said CATS Executive Director, Chris Maron. “It will help us to redesign and update our individual trail maps on our website. We’ve added a lot of exciting additions over the past few years, and it will be great to highlight them.”

Champlain Area Trails was founded in 2009 to save land, make trails, connect people to nature, and promote economic vitality in NY’s Champlain Valley. Since then, they’ve developed over 60 miles of trails.

Support for this work is from Adirondack Foundation – the community foundation serving the Adirondack Region working to enhance the lives of the people in the Adirondacks through philanthropy.  To learn more, visit
