New Adirondack group builds ambitious new trail system in Champlain Valley

Listen to this story
The Wildway Overlook Trail -- featured in Brian Mann's audio postcard this morning -- is a relatively new path that's been built and opened by an organization called Champlain Area Trails, or CATS.

It's a non-profit group based in Westport that formed two years ago after local hikers and land conservation advocates grew impatient with the scarcity of trails in one of the most gorgeous parts of the Adirondacks.

Brian Mann spoke with Chris Maron, executive director of CATS. Maron says organizers quickly learned that they had a lot of great trails already in place that just needed more publicity.
