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 24-mile section from Whitehall to Ticonderoga follows State Route 22, providing sweeping views of the Adirondack Mountains, farmlands, and rural Washington 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 Villages of Whitehall and Ticonderoga (there are no services in the 24 miles between the two Villages).
