The Travels of Tug 44

A Photo Tour of
The Champlain Canal

The Champlain Canal begins at the junction with the Erie Canal at Waterford, near the Federal Lock at Troy and runs north some 60 miles to Whitehall at Lake Champlain. The lower half follows the Hudson River, and at Fort Edward it branches out to a hand-dug section. There are 11 locks, numbered 1 through 12... there's no lock 10.

This canal is small and quaint and has a number of interesting small towns along the way.

Here are some of the towns and points of interest on the Champlain Canal (with mile markers):
