Updated: Sep 22, 2018

Bear Trap road bridge - is a 3 mile paddle to Gravelle Rd. Fishing Access Point or 6 miles (roughly 4-5 hours) to Sand Bar State Park. The River is wide and shallow. The current is hardly noticeable. This section of the river displays mostly natural areas on it’s banks such as rock bluffs and forest banks. Turtles and birds are the most common wildlife visible. This section of the Lamoille River is calm, winding and a peaceful paddle to enjoy. (Description continues below with Gravelle Rd. Fishing Access Point)

Gravelle rd fishing access point - is an easy 3 mile paddle (roughly 2 1/2 hours) to Sand Bar State Park. It is pretty much a straight shot to Lake Champlain as the river’s gradual bends are hardly noticeable. There are lots of turtles to spot and many varieties of birds all living in this area. The river is very wide and shallow with a current that is barely noticeable. As you approach Lake Champlain the scenery is breathtaking! The views from this point unfold the Adirondack Mountains in a spectacular way. As you steer left around the Sand Bar Water Fowl Management Area the paddling changes to winding your way through the reeds on your way to the Sand Bar State Park access point.
