Communities along the Hudson River, upstream from Glens Falls and west of Lake George, have joined together to celebrate their shared history along the earliest route into the heart of the Adirondack wilderness. From the Great Falls of the Hudson, upriver to the dramatic Hudson River Gorge, the stream tumbles over falls and rapids, past dramatic cliffs ofmagnificent marble, then slows to flow easily through ice meadows. Soldiers followed these trails during French and Indian War.
"The Great Northeast Journey" is your ticket to a unique American experience. North America's first inter-connected waterway - the Upper Hudson River/Champlain Canal, Lake George, and Lake Champlain - shaped the nation-building activities of the U.S. and Canada. By bike, foot, boat or car, Lakes to Locks Passage provides access to over 200 miles of this historic watercourse, is used by migratory birds and native peoples, explorers, armies, commercial enterprises and now, diverse recreational activities.
