Please note trail may be partially closed due to flooding. Butternut Hill Natural Area was conserved in partnership with the Lake Champlain Land Trust and consists of approximately 77 acres of a mix of wetlands, uplands, two small agricultural fields, and over 500ft of undeveloped Lake Champlain shoreline. The two wetlands are both long, narrow branches of Lakeside Floodplain Forest divided by a low, forested ridge with a beech forest containing impressively large trees and a small patch of red cedar woodland along the rocky bluff at the lake shore.
