From the South: Take Exit 17 off of I-89 onto US Route 2 W toward the Islands for about 7 miles. Take the first left in South Hero onto Landon Road. After about 0.8 miles, take your first left onto East Shore Road, follow the road down a small hill and park in the gravel pull off on your left.
From the North: Take US Route 2 E. In South Hero, take a right on South Street. Take your first left on Landon Road and then take your first right onto East Shore Road. Follow the road down a small hill and park in the gravel pull off on your left.
The walking trails include two meadow loops that are mowed a few times each season, as well as a wooded trail that leads past Round Pond and down to the shore of Lake Champlain. As you begin to walk downhill to the lake, look carefully to the north (toward Round Pond) to spot a secluded bench several yards from the trail.
Round Pond Natural Area was conserved in partnership with South Hero Land Trust, the Nature Conservancy, the Vermont Land Trust, the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, and the Lake Champlain Land Trust.
The property is owned by the State of Vermont, and the Lake Champlain Land Trust is the primary managing organization. Visit their website: lakechamplainlandtrust.org for more information
