Yellow Wood Associates, Inc. provided an inventory and assessment of hiking and walking resources in the Lake Champlain Basin. The work was undertaken as part of a bi-state Lake Champlain Byways Management Plan, and produced a database and maps with centralized information on hiking and walking resources in shoreline towns in the Lake Champlain Region. A brochure was developed for public distribution. The Lake Champlain Byways project was a collaborative effort between three New York Planning offices (Clinton, Essex and Washington), four Vermont Regional Planning Commissions (Northwest, Chittenden, Addison and Rutland), the Adirondack North Country Association, the New York Department of Transportation, and the Vermont Agency of Transportation.
