Trip Overview

Lake Champlain is the sixth largest lake in the U.S., but what really makes it so special is the unspoiled natural beauty of its shoreline, and the unsurpassed views across the lake to the Green and Adirondack mountains. Saturday’s easy cycling begins with a delightful ride along the western shore of the lake. You stop for a visit at Snow Farm Vineyards, which is followed by an awe-inspiring ride along a former railway causeway that extends over a mile out onto the lake.

Sunday’s ride takes you over Alburg Passage and across a small bridge to Isle La Motte, the site of a French fort built in 1666 ... and to Saint Anne’s Shrine. Sometime during your stay, you will want to visit Hero’s Welcome General Store, the local community gathering place and purveyors of an eclectic mix of baked goods, local arts, and rugged necessities.

On this weekend, you stay at the historic North Hero House. This lakeside inn has long been a local favorite and provides comfortable rooms and excellent dining while still maintaining its essential old-fashioned character and charm.

Itinerary

From start to finish, check out the route.

DAY 1 - North Hero Island

Settle in at the North Hero House located right on the shore of beautiful Lake Champlain. Perhaps enjoy an afternoon tea relaxing in a lake-side rocking chair before having an enjoyable dinner and meeting with your fellow weekend adventurers.
DAY 2 - Quintessential Vermont
Distance: 38 miles | Terrain: Easier | North Hero House
Ride along the western shores of the islands looking across Lake Champlain to the towering peaks of the Adirondacks. Enjoy a visit to Snow Farm Vineyards and ride out the narrow causeway that extends far into a beautiful bay. On your return there are gorgeous views of the Green Mountains to the east, and guests usually make a stop at the quintessential Hero’s Welcome General Store.
DAY 3 - Isle la Motte
Distance: 25 or 28 miles | Terrain: Easier
Today you cycle north crossing a narrow causeway onto Isle la Motte, where you visit Saint Anne’s Shrine and the site of the first French settlement in the soon-to-be United States. An option takes you out to the Fiske Quarry where you might see evidence of the 480-million-year-old fossils along outcroppings of the Chazy Fossil Reef
