Today's 553-acre park began with an initial land purchase by the State of Vermont in 1975. It is named for Niquette Bay, the local name for an indentation along the northeastern shore of Lake Champlain's larger Malletts Bay. 4700 feet of scenic rocky and sandy shoreline along the bay comprise the park's southern boundary.
The park's trail system accesses high points along ridges, from which impressive vistas overlook Malletts Bay to the south, the Green Mountain ridge line to the east, and the Lake Champlain Islands to the west. The park trail system is comprised of three interlocking "loops" along which a variety of hiking combinations can occur. The complete loop around the Ledges, Muhley, and Island View trails is 3.5 miles. The shortest distance to the lakeshore is 0.6 miles, via the Allen trail.
Trail length: 4 miles
