Hiking CATS trails to a mountain, river, and farm

In January, I hiked three CATS trails for a story in the March/April issue of the Explorer. The hikes took place on the Riverside Trail in Willsboro, North Boquet Mountain near Essex, and Dacy Meadow Farm in Westport. The trails offer a different type of experience than you get with your typical hike on the forest preserve in the interior of the Adirondack Park. Champlain Valley hikes often feature rivers, views of Lake Champlain and Green Mountains, and agricultural land. The valley is a good place to go during mud season because the trails are in the lowlands or on smaller mountains and they dry out faster than those in the High Peaks.
