(12 miles RT paddle from Blue Mtn. Lake, moderate, and a 1 mile RT walk, easy) After paddling across Blue Mtn. Lake, under W. W. Durant's classic bridge (circa 1891), and down narrow Eagle and Utowana lakes, you reach the remains of the steamboat landing at the eastern end of the Marion River Railroad. Walk the right-of-way (used today as a canoe portage trail) of what was the world's shortest railroad. The half-mile railroad ran between the two steamboat landings thus connecting Raquette and Blue Mtn. lakes. This ingenious route was used by thousands to reach resorts on Blue Mountain Lake in the 1880s. The locomotive and passenger coach are on display at Adirondack Experience - The Museum at Blue Mountain Lake.
