Point Au Roche State Park, on the northwestern shore of Lake Champlain, is a mixture of open and forested areas, most of them natural and undeveloped. The park's large day-use area has a protected, sandy beach, picnic facilities and concession stand. Boating and fishing are popular activities, as are volleyball, softball and other games. The park offers 60 designated mooring sites in Deep Bay. The staffed Nature Center offers a variety of programs open to the public all year. The park's trails, including nature, hiking and biking trails, wind through interesting habitats, from forest to marsh to shoreline. The trails are in use all year for school programs, nature hikes and cross-country skiing. The park also provides access for ice fishing.

We love this trail, and it's great for younger kids. It's great for a nice and easy walk with plenty of views of Lake Champlain.
We have hiked all of these trails at Point Au Roche, and a few trails and mountains elsewhere. Point Au Roche, however seems to be the only place where I've come home with ticks. Spray yourself and use permethrin in clothing if you'd like to spend a day on the Point Au Roche trails.

All of the trails here are super easy, and great for young children. Point Au Roche is definitely a great place to go if you want to spend a day in the woods and walk trails. *loaded with ticks, spray with deet and use permethrin in clothing*

a well-kept secret of Champlain Valley-- 12 miles of very quiet, scenic and secluded hiking trails overlooking Lake Champlain. Offers swimming, hiking, snow shoeing, cross-country skiing and biking. Great for kids and animal friendly.
