Trail Overview

The 110-mile portion of the Empire State Trail through the Champlain Valley, from Whitehall to the Canada border at Rouses Point, is entirely an on-road bicycle route. The 27-mile section from Ticonderoga to Westport follows State Route 9N, providing sweeping views of the Adirondack Mountains, Lake Champlain, and rural Essex County. It is appropriate for experienced, long-distance bicyclists comfortable riding on roadway shoulders, next to vehicle traffic. This section is not recommended for casual bicycle riders or hikers. Trail users can access a variety of local services in the picturesque hamlets of Ticonderoga, Crown Point, Port Henry, and Westport (there are few services between the hamlets).
