Islands and Farms: Vermont, Lake Champlain to Missisquoi River (Trail section 4). This section of the Trail crosses the famous Lake Champlain, the nation's sixth largest lake and the scene of many naval battles from the American Revolution and French and Indian Wars, including the sinking of Benedict Arnold's ship (since recovered) and many other shipwrecks. You'll paddle through farm lands and past vineyards, having many small-town options for a lunch or overnight stay. Birdwatchers will enjoy the 6600-acre Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge and a stop at the Abenaki Tribal Museum in Swanton is a great way to learn about the native heritage of this region.
