LGBTQIA++ hikers (and birders) are gathering in North Hero along the shores of Lake Champlain. The mile-long trail at Butternut Hill winds through floodplain forests, cedar pine forests and cobble shorelines while offering a great southerly view of Lake Champlain. There is a beautiful walkout to a point of land overlooking the water and two nice shale beaches that someday could support nesting soft-shell turtles.
