Long Pond / Sea Caves • 34 acres

With just one dead end trail, the twin locations of Arthur Park and the Donahue Sea Caves don’t seem like they have much to offer. But to those who plan accordingly, the trail down to Long Pond is a portal to a mysterious. By canoe, or foot when the pond has thick enough ice, the rocky recession in cliffs over the pond known as the Sea Caves can be seen in all of its splendor. These formations are a remnant of a time when Lake Champlain was much larger and entombed the area in an inland sea. The wetland offers waterfowl plenty of habitat while their terrestrial wildlife counterparts traverse the banks. Access the trailhead down to the Sea Caves and Arthur Park via the bus stop by Burlington High School on North Avenue.
