Several easy hikes wander through varied terrain in a wildlife refuge located on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain near the Canadian border. The 6,642-acre Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge, established in 1943, comprises most of the Missisquoi River delta where it flows into Missisquoi Bay. The refuge consists of quiet waters and wetlands, which attract large flocks of migratory birds. Upland areas are a mix of open fields and hardwood forests of American elm, white ash, white oak, and silver and red maple.
