The Chittenden Reservoir

The Chittenden Reservoir is a 750-acre reservoir surrounded by Green Mountain National Forest in the midst of the Crossroads of Vermont region. The reservoir was developed in 1909 by damming East Creek for power generating purposes. Chittenden Reservoir is extremely popular with nature fans. The seven-mile shoreline with its many coves and small bays is ideal for canoes and kayaks. The lake and surrounding forest land are home to many animals including moose, loons, bald eagles, osprey, beavers, many species of waterfowl, such as black ducks and mergansers, black bear, white-tailed deer, red fox, river otter and many, many more. The entire area around Chittenden Reservoir is the kind of natural paradise the city-dwelling nature lover can only dream about.

Lefferts Pond

Lefferts Pond covers 55 acres and is 10-12 feet deep located in the Green Mountain National Forest. Lefferts Pond is a beautiful gem providing a magnificent view of Pico and Killington Mountains with reflections of them in the calm water. A bird lover's paradise with over 115 species tallied here. As a bonus, moose, otter, beaver and mink are frequently seen around the pond. Moose watching is a favorite excursion among those visiting the Green Mountain National Forest. The American moose is the most loved and highly sought after inhabitant of this forest. Moose sightings take place mostly during dusk or at dawn. These animals are active during the night. They are generally seen in groups and even though they might seem tame, it is advisable to keep a distance while watching them. Only non-motorized boats are allowed on Lefferts Pond making it ideal for kayaking.
