Excellent small state park, with approx 6 total miles of woodsy trails. There is a $3 per person day use fee during the summer, from Memorial Day to Labor Day. There are several scenic views of Lake Champlain along the trails. There are also 2 swimming areas - one with rocky access to climb in/out, and the other a small gentle beach that's suitable for children. There is also an off-leash portion of the trails for dogs.

There are 2 'easy' trails and 2 'moderate' ones. The easy trails are "Allen" and "Burns", which extend from the parking area mostly south towrads the swimming areas. These are both pleasant, woodsy trails that are mostly flat, with occasional modest pitches.

The 2 'moderate' trails are "Ledges" and "Muhley". These are each ~1.7 miles long and form a rough circle around the periphery of the park. Both have some short moderate up/down grades and some stone or wood steps. There is a small 0.2 mile loop trail from mid-way along Muhley called "Islands View", which leads to a very nice lookout point showing Lake Champlain, several of the Champlain Islands and the NY Adirondaks to the west.

Trails can be Icy in winter and muddy in spring.

Directions:

From I-89, take exit 17 (for Milton & the Champlain Islands).

Head west on Rt. 2 ~3/4 mile to Raymond Road. You must exit to the right, then turn left - going across Rt. 2, heading south on Raymond Rd.

Go ~1/3 mile south on Raymond Road to the Niquette Bay State Park driveway on the left.
