Champlain Area Trails will formally open the newest addition to the CATS trail network on Sunday, June 25 in Willsboro, with a hike starting at 1 pm. All are invited to celebrate the grand opening of the “High Point Trail” which goes to the highest point on Willsboro Point.
The High Point Trail is on the property of Marsha and Bill Harbison, who developed the trail and have opened it to the public for hiking. CATS completed trail work, marked the trail, and created a small parking area trailhead.
About two miles long, the High Point Trail has two loops which wind through deep forest, along rock walls, and past several vernal pools and wetlands that provide habitat for a variety of amphibians. The highest point on Willsboro Point is the top of small rise on the peninsula surrounded by Lake Champlain.
Sunday’s hikers are to meet at the High Point Trailhead on Point Road, about .6 mile north of Frisbie Road. Parking is available along the road (pull completely off the roadway).
For more information, call the CATS office at (518) 962-2287.
