Vermont's famous Whales' Tails sculpture is seen by thousands every day -- er, rather, hundreds (this is Vermont) -- as they whiz by in their cars on I-89. This trail will take you around for a close-up look at the black granite sculpture, which stands 12-13 feet tall. The sculpture's real title, "Reverence," is meant to evoke the fragility of the planet. Jim Sardonis of Randolph, VT, created the piece in 1989.
From Burlington, take Williston Road (Route 2) east out of town, towards Williston. Turn right onto Kennedy Drive (a left turn here will bring you to the airport), then take a left onto Kimball Ave. Take the second right onto Community Drive; the trailhead will be on your right as you round the curve.
