The ancient delta in the center foreground was farmland in the late 19th century, and became Branbury State Park in 1945. The sandy sediments have been worked into the best beach on the lake.
The vantage point is an outcrop of Cheshire quartzite surrounded by one of Vermont’s rarest forest communities. The thin soil supports a sparse forest of pitch pines (Pinus rigida) with white and red pine (P. strobus, P. resinosa), and white, red, and chestnut oak (Quercus alba, Q. rubra, Q. prinus).
