Falls of Carillon (LaChute Falls) Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This falls’ history impresses viewers even more than its power. A center of life support, civilization, and industry for many centuries, the Falls of Carillon—also known as LaChute Falls, the name the French gave to what is now the Ticonderoga River—played host to untold numbers of Native Americans making the crossing from Lake George to Lake Champlain.
When European explorers and colonists arrived, the falls became an unusually popular spot to wage war, with battles taking place spontaneously as Indians and French and English colonists left the river to make portage here."
