The Town of Greenwich boundary begins at the Hudson Crossing Gate on Rt 42 to the Dix Bridge. This is a key segment since it passes through Hudson Crossing Park, a unique recreational and educational destination centered on Lock C5 Island on the Champlain Canal and Hudson River. Once the site of neglected land, Hudson Crossing Park is a testament to community involvement and municipal collaboration. The trails in the park host dog walkers, hikers, runners, bikers and bird watchers.

Champlain Canal Trail

The Champlain Canalway Trail crosses the Dix Bridge, a restored structure on the State and National Register of Historic Places. The bridge provides passage over the Hudson River joining pedestrian, bicycle and snowmobile trails in Washington and Saratoga counties. The CCT follows Route 113 north to Route 4, crossing to follow River Road to the Town of Fort Edward. These sections will mostly follow low-use, scenic, riverside roads.

Empire State Trail

The EST will follow the path of the CCT up the River Road until it meets up with Route 4 again just north of Old Champlain Canal Lock 13 Pocket Park
