The 2022  Grand Hike was fabulous! 


It great time to meet new and old friends who hiked the Westport Loop trail and joined the afternoon's festivities at Ledge Hill Brewing Company on May 14th.


We are so pleased to have started a new tradition here in the Champlain Valley of getting people to come out in early May for a town-to-town hike, or in this case, a town-within-a-town hike, as over 150 people hiked from the fairgrounds to the fairgrounds, and then to the brewery. Many commented on how excited they were to do the Grand Hike after the two-year Covid-caused break. Hooray!
