Complete the Moriah Challenge and earn a patch!  

The Moriah Hiking Challenge is a quartet of Champlain Area Trails (CATS) hikes that lead to rocky summits, a firetower, and a backcountry body of water. Completing the challenge will not only earn you a patch, but connect you with the local community that these hikes are located in.

Hikers must complete all four local Champlain Area Trails (CATS) hikes, which include:

1. Belfry Mountain - A short hike featuring a firetower.

2. Big Hollow/Coot Hill - A small summit with views of Lake Champlain.

3. Cheney Mountain - Viewpoints from a ridge of the High Peaks, historic mine tailings, and Lake Champlain.

4. Crowfoot Pond - A longer hike with bridge crossings, large pine forests, and a backcountry pond
