Full Moon Hike at Viall's Crossing

Champlain Area Trails (CATS) and John Brown Lives! (JBL!) will co-host a Full Moon Hike at the Viall’s Crossing Trail in Westport on Friday, Jan. 10, 2020. The hike will begin at 5 p.m. under the first full moon of 2020.

The Full Moon Hike will follow a loop trail at Viall’s Crossing called John Brown’s Trail, which commemorates the farm’s historical connection to John Brown, passing by some towering trees that bore witness to Brown’s passage 160 years ago.

The 1.5 mile hike will take about an hour and a half and if there’s snow, participants are welcome to snowshoe or cross-country ski. The hike will begin at a point just west of the railroad tracks on Route 22, about halfway between Westport and Wadhams; look for the bright yellow trail signs. After the hike, participants are invited to meet and dine at a local restaurant to be determined.

There is no fee for the Full Moon Hike, but registration is advised in case there is last minute information to share. Please call the CATS office at (518) 962-2287 or send a message to info@champlainareatrail.com  Be sure to dress warmly and prepare for a great time!
