Walk the path to two eighteenth- century forts that tell two distinctly different stories—and top off your hike with a lake crossing to Vermont. Here at the pivot point between French and English domination of this peninsula on the edge of Lake Champlain, the remains of two forts tell a compelling story of military life before the Revolutionary War. This trail gives you ample opportunity to explore both forts, marvel at the fact that these stone walls still stand more than 250 after their construction, and take in the view soldiers may have paused to enjoy between battles.

Walk the path to two eighteenth- century forts that tell two distinctly different stories—and top off your hike with a lake crossing to Vermont. Here at the pivot point between French and English domination of this peninsula on the edge of Lake Champlain, the remains of two forts tell a compelling story of
military life before the Revolutionary War.

This trail gives you ample opportunity to explore both forts, marvel at the fact that these stone walls still stand more than 250 after their construction, and take in the view soldiers may have paused to enjoy between battles.
