Review from Guidestar
Champlain Area Trails has compiled an impressive record during the brief time it has been in existence. In about three years it has moved from an idea to an active organization with its first director that already has built new trails, developed a cadre of volunteers, attracted public support, led popular hikes, and positioned itself to pursue its mission vigorously in the years ahead.
