Explore the Champlain Canalway Trail

The Champlain Canalway Trail is a 62-mile multi-use trail extending from Waterford to Whitehall in northeastern New York. Sharing a footprint with the Empire State Trail and parts of State Bike Route 9, the route takes walkers and cyclists through a landscape rich with its agricultural and cultural heritage with many points of interest to explore along the way. The full length of the trail parallels the Erie Canalway National Heritage Water Trail along the Champlain Canalway with trail heads at water access points.
