The LaChute River in Ticonderoga, NY features LaChute Falls, a series of five different waterfalls located along the LaChute River Walk Trail. This 3-mile trail includes multiple wayside exhibits that illustrate the history of the area.
Follow The Trail
One of the best ways to witness the beautiful LaChute Falls is by following the LaChute River Walk Trail. The trail begins at the Ticonderoga Heritage Museum near Bicentennial Park and travels along the river to the intersection of Lord Howe Street and Alexandria Avenue.
- Once you've made the loop around Bicentennial Park, cross the covered bridge and walk around the ball fields and tennis courts.
- Then, head toward the historic Frazier Bridge and continue along the river by going west then south.
- As you continue to pass by dams, you'll eventually cross the river one more time near the end of the 3-mile hike, just before you reach Alexandria Avenue.
Learn About The Area
Not only does the Riverwalk Trail provide amazing views of rapids and Ticonderoga's waterfalls, but it's also a fun way to learn a little about the area.
You can find interpretive signage placed along the trail from start to finish that describe some of the dams, former industrial sites, the river, and more.
You can pick up a copy of the Riverwalk Trail map at the Ticonderoga Heritage Museum or Chamber of Commerce, or by viewing the online version provided by PRIDE of Ticonderoga.
