This shoreline location is well-situated to observe sweeping shorelines on both sides of Lake Champlain. In spring and fall, the lake becomes a migratory highway which funnels traffic between the Adirondack Mountains to the west, and the Green Mountains to the east.
How to get there
From the intersection of Routes 9N, 74, and 22 in Ticonderoga, follow 22/74 east for 1.6 miles. Turn left to stay on Route 74 and continue 1.4 miles to the boat launch.
Expect to see common goldeneye, common merganser, hooded merganser, greater and lesser scaup, and Canada geese. Green herons move to their breeding ranges during March and April, and leave to move south between September and October. Fort Ticonderoga is only minutes away, but offers fine habitat to see grosbeaks, orioles, and warblers.
