Weston Mountain: A worthy destination

What do you suppose is the most popular mountain accessed from the Roostercomb trailhead in Keene Valley? Careful with your answer, it might not be the obvious. Well bad luck, it is the obvious. Most hikers scoot right up to Roostercomb, breezing on by the junction to Snow Mountain, which is an equally appealing, but on most days a far less crowded hike.

LEWIS | The public is invited to join Champlain Area Trails (CATS) at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 18, as it launches West Valley Trail, the 43rd addition to its trail system. Bringing the CATS trail system to just over 70 miles, this 3.5-mile walk meanders through diverse forest communities, crossing a gentle woodland stream before reaching a scenic overlook with views of the area known as the "twin valleys." The trail follows an old logging road with a fairly easy climb to the overlook.

A scenic ride on Vermontville’s Norman Ridge

Plenty of options for road biking along the backside of Whiteface. Art galleries are acknowledged sources of home decor, but they are underappreciated as sources for outdoor-adventure ideas. When you think about it though, it only makes sense that local artists are going to know all the area’s best vistas.
