In 1955, the steamboat Ticonderoga was moved overland to its permanent resting place at the Shelburne Museum. To move this 220-foot side-wheel passenger steamer from Lake Champlain to the museum grounds, a special road had to be constructed. This mile-long road, which has now been converted to a recreation trail, starts on Bay Road near Shelburne Bay Park, and connects to Harbor Road, just west of the Shelburne Community School.
For information about the Ticonderoga, you may visit Shelburne Museum. A film about the moving of the Ticonderoga is shown on board, and walking tours are scheduled daily when the Museum is open.

From Shelburne Road (Route 7), turn west onto Bay Road. Go under the railroad tracks and look for parking on your right, just past the boat access. The trailhead is on the other side of Bay Road. The southern trailhead is on Harbor Road about 0.6 miles from the village center, but has no parking available.
