Champlain Canalway Trail: Schuylerville Description

The Schuylerville segment of the 71-mile Champlain Canalway Trail rail runs between Schuyler House, past Lock 5 of the canal and does a loop around the island (Hudson Crossing Park). As of 2011, only about 17 miles of the Champlain Canalway Trail are complete; another 14 miles are being planned or expected to be finished within the next few years. A multi-use trail, some sections will be open to snowmobiles.

Champlain Canalway Trail: Schuylerville Reviews

North of Schuylerville, this trail passes by Champlain Canal Lock 5 and through Hudson Crossing Park, which has about 2 miles of other trails to explore. One leads north between the Champlain Canal and the Hudson River to Eagle Point, with a beautiful view of the dam and rapids below. Learn more at www.HudsonCrossingPark.org. It is worth noting, too, that once you cross the pedestrian bridge over the Hudson, back roads have been designated as the route of the Champlain Canalway Trail as far north as Fort Edward. Most of this route is signed. As of late 2016, this is the longest continuous stretch of the CCT open to the public.

If you are distance cycling as I do through Schuylerville, this trail is a welcome diversion from traffic. The 100 year old bridge across the Hudson has also been restored and is open for recreational use only, connecting the trail to the east side of the river.

This travels mostly along the towpath of the original Champlain Canal. Although it's pleasant and shady, it's way too short to be made a destination, unless you happen to be a history buff. Trail runs from Lock 5 of the Hudson River, just north of Schuylerville, to the Schuyler House, just south of the post office. The trail is somewhat difficult to find in parts. It actually runs almost 1.5 miles.
