A hike that follows the outermost trails of Niquette Bay State Park.

Features Fall Colors · Lake · Swimming · Views

Overview

This is a great route granting your fill of great views of the lake, while getting a solid 3.5 miles of hiking in. All the while, this is only a few minutes off of I-89.

Need to Know

Entry to the park is $3 per person from May 8 - Columbus Day. The rest of the year, the park is free to use.

Description

From the trailhead, stay right onto the Muhley Trail. After ascending the hill, follow the sign to do the Island View Trail. This will take you to a great overlook of Lake Champlain and meets back up with the Muhley Trail.

Continue down this trail to the Cedar Point Trail, which overlooks the cove before joining back up with the Muhley Trail/Beach Bypass Trail. Follow the Beach Bypass Trail to the Ledges Trail, which will take you back to the trailhead.

Overall, these trails are fairly well-maintained. The Muhley Trail and Ledges Trail have a decent amount of rocks, but nothing that requires more than careful stepping to safely navigate.
