The Flatlander

This loop takes the rider on a short loop through the cornfields of Beekmantown and Chazy and involves almost no climbing. The route also passes by Point au Roche State Park, free to cyclists, which has a day use area, swimming beach, hiking and mountain biking trails which end at three separate rocky points projecting into Lake Champlain, paved bike path, and a nature center.


The route begins at the Point au Roche State Boat Launch on Cemetery Road and passes a stand of roadside sugar maples on Stratton Hill Road. After crossing the Northway the route leaves the cornfields and crosses through woodlands and pastures climbing a very slight grade. There is a grocery store and restaurant in West Chazy. Spellman Road leads past Beekmantown School and Beekmantown Town Hall before recrossing the Northway. Taking a left on Point au Roche Road and taking it back to the boat launch parking lot, you will pass the state park and nature center along the way.
