Champlain Valley Trailblazers Meetup



Champlain Valley Trailblazers Meetup


Join us on wednesday, august 7th, from 5:30 Pm until 8:30 Pm at Twin Valleys Outdoor education center for food, hiking, and capture the flag. 


*This event was rescheduled from July 24th due to rain*


Champlain Valley Trailblazers are individuals under 45, including nonprofit leaders, business owners, agro-tourism workers, young professionals, next-gen individuals, interns, and seasonal workers interested in trails and conservation in the Champlain Valley of the Adirondacks.


Come meet other people interested in the outdoors and conservation in the Champlain Valley! We will start with some food around a campfire provided by Champlain Area Trails, where people can enjoy some burgers, hot dogs, and veggie burgers along with roasting marshmallows. Afterward, people are welcome to explore the growing trail network Twin Valleys has to offer, which Champlain Area Trails has been working to improve over the last few years. These hidden gems of hikes are incredible. We will also have a game of capture the flag in the field for those who are game to join!
