Blueway Trail: Monitor Bay to Ticonderoga
This segment explores a narrow and marshy section of the lake. Wildlife is abundant here, especially birds and waterfowl. Here, the lake becomes quite narrow and feels almost river-like. This segment travels the same waters as countless ships have in the long history of Lake Champlain.
Launch Sites: Monitor Bay Park and Marina; Ticonderoga NYS Boat Launch
Paddling Distance: 7.7 Miles (12.4 kilometers)
Notes: North and south winds can result in choppy water, but generally this segment is protected. Limited shore access. Milfoil can make paddling more challenging.
