his trip provides a scenic, pleasant and reflective 250th anniversary experience for the time traveler as he or she visits the period when this bicycle path was the road used in the 18th century to transport military troops and supplies from Fort Edward to Lake George, NY. Lake George was the staging ground for a 1759 English attack on French held Fort Carillon in Ticonderoga, NY during the French and Indian War. This adventure also highlights the relevance of this geographical area in Colonial history from the time when Samuel de Champlain discovered Lac du St. Sacrement (Lake of the Blessed Sacrament) in the 1600's to the Revolutionary War when Benedict Arnold and Ethan Allan teamed up to provide the first offensive action of the Revolutionary War in 1775.
