Overlook is a nice park for viewing Lake Champlain or parking your car to go on the adjacent bike path. Very popular for summer sunsets - get there early!

Sun set on Lake Champlain and picnicking was fun in the afternoon. Trying to catch the fall colors in Vermont and came across this park. Just part of wandering, visiting covered bridges, small towns and of course Ben and Jerry’s.

My wife and I found this spot by accident. Beautiful view of the valley and Lake Champlain. Would be a nice spot for a picnic lunch.

Easy, convenient access to a wonderful view. Sunset can be spectacular. Traffic is usually non existent and people are friendly . No services.

At sunset, this sleepy little park can become a hive of activity. The view of the Adirondacks and Lake Champlain is lovely -- especially when there is a colorful sunset. Young couples spread blankets on the hillside and spread out to watch the sun slowly...More

Beautiful... that's it. Great asset to this city. You can see mountains for miles and the lake and it was so quiet and green and beautiful

This is a low-key place to meet up with friends or just hang out alone to see the sunset. Pack a picnic and get there early especially in the summer as parking is limited. there are picnic benches to eat at and you can also...More
