Coot Hill / Big Hollow Trail


Description: Explore this 1.1-mile out-and-back trail near Port Henry, New York. Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 31 minutes to complete. Coot Hill Trail leads to one of the best viewpoints in the Champlain Valley. It follows a seasonal road to an old cemetery, where it then goes to the overlook where hikers can look south down the Champlain Valley toward Ticonderoga, east across Bulwagga Bay and the Champlain Bridge toward the Green Mountains of Vermont, and north to Split Rock Wild Forest almost twenty miles away. Meanwhile, just to the south is “Big Hollow,” a glacial carved canyon whose cliffs provide thermal updrafts used by hawks when they migrate north, and turkey vultures flying for fun and looking out for food.


Directions: Click here for directions.

To get to the trailhead you will take Lang Road for 1 mile, then come to a seasonal road. You can park just up the road by the brook or continue up .5 miles to the cemetery.
