  1. The Harvest Festival begins with a 5-mile hike led by Champlain Area Trails at 10:00. It will begin and end at the fairgrounds. The route will go on Viall’s Crossing Trail to Hemlock Hill Trail to Woods and Swale Trail and then back to the fairgrounds on Lakeshore Road and Sisco Street. It’s a fabulous hike.
