Lake Champlain Bikeways

Click here to view enlarged map as 681 KB PDF file. Many bicyclists have discovered some of North America's finest bicycling along the more than 1,200 mile Lake Champlain Bikeways network. The Lake Champlain Bikeways Map [681 KB] illustrates most of these routes.

Initiated in 1994, Lake Champlain Bikeways is a network of interconnected, international bicycle routes around Lake Champlain in New York, Vermont and the Upper Richelieu Valley of Quebec. To date, the network includes a 363-mile principal route around the entire Lake, known as the Champlain Bikeway, and 34 shorter loops that connect to the principal route and range in distance from ten to 47 miles.

Based on natural, cultural and historic themes, these loops meander along quiet back roads through an extraordinary display of breathtaking mountain and countryside scenery. Lake Champlain Bikeways, a not-for-profit organization, is working closely with local communities and the Lake Champlain Basin Program to create these theme loops and to identify ways to preserve and enhance the bicycle-friendliness of the region.

Bicycling along the Lake. Bicyclists may order a variety of cycling publications through the Lake Champlain Bikeways website or by contacting the Bikeways information clearinghouse to help plan a Lake Champlain bicycling adventure.
