2015 is the 20th anniversary of when our northern neighbors began the extensive, fantastic hiking trail system which covers the distance from St. Augustin du Woburn (Rt. 27 Border Crossing) to Chartierville (N.H. Border Crossing), in Quebec, roughly along the ridge of the International Border hills, as well as many spurs on Mt. Gosford & Mt. Megantic, linking terrain that goes from mild to wild, & is appreciated year-round by hikers & snow-shoers alike! Our friends Andre & Monique paid us a visit to share their update: go check out their trails, if not this winter, next summer, for sure!! Bienvenue au Quebec!
The High Peaks Alliance is a non-profit group in Franklin County who is making huge strides in trail conservation & development to be enjoyed by both non-motorized & motorized outdoors sports enthusiasts. As total believers in all things outdoors for all to enjoy with care along the way, we wanted our viewers to hear about what this great non-profit is doing in the western mountains of Maine. Lloyd Griscom’s visit with WSKI was a perfect opportunity to raise more awareness amongst our viewers (who are all outdoors enthusiasts because that is 100% what WSKI is all about) of the work & accomplishments of the High Peaks Alliance as they continue to assist with economic development through tourism by ensuring the region is a destination for recreationalists of ALL types who love mountains, forests, lakes & rivers such as what you find in this special region.
