When I did the search for Shelburne Pond I was taken to a trail map on Lake Champlain also in the town of Shelburne. Is there a trail map for Shelburne Pond? My sister and I took our two grandsons who really enjoyed trying to be"pathfinders" but we were underwhelmed with the squirrel cage path network. The boys were rewarded with a natural cave find! A highlight but not sure we could find it again.

Great little short hike!

I loved it beautiful views. It was just what I was looking for .

Went for a small hike with my mirrorless camera and discovered a bunch of birds. But also an Owl. Way cool.

The trails are well groomed and it is an easy hike/walk. There are several small hiking trails with some minor elevation if you choose.

The bay is awesome. The woods equally great.

Will return often.

It's easy with some fun spots. Cool little park.

Took a tumble in the woods but besides that it's a great path with great views!!

I went off the main path, which I thought was boring, and into the woods with the dog. Found some really nice spots along the lake, a few quick climbs and a nice lookout spot.

This is in fact a very interesting trail, although the trail that Mark was on is not the LaPlatte River Marsh trail.
He was on the other side of Bay road heading out toward the point--highly recommended as well.

This trail is fun, but is RIDICULOUSLY short. Someone screwed up Alltrails and posted that this was a 3 mile hike, so I went to do it today and found out that even with all of the side trails, I only walked a mile. This is a half mile trail, about 1 mile as a loop. It's odd that it's so tiny, considering the expanse of area around the pond...I was hoping that it would be identical to Colchester Pond, where you have a large loop that goes around the entire body of water. This trail barely leaves the parking lot. I had fun on it, but I caution you that the trail is VERY poorly marked, and at least 10 times I had to stop and look 360 degrees to find a trail marker (and usually didn't) because the trail either split and went multiple directions, or nowhere at all. There were at least 5 random trail spurs that went off in totally different directions, all unmarked. I'm a big off-trail person, so I followed every one of them, and did the whole trail twice today to make sure I wasn't missing something...but in the end I realized that yes, this trail really is that short.

Great little hike... You can either stick to the gravel path, or use the woods. I prefer the woods so the dogs can run around a bit. In the woods, you can follow the Clark Trail up to Alan's Hill which has a great view above Shelburne Bay with Camel's Hump in the background. There's a couple great places for dogs to swim there as well. It's also a great place for a quick snowshoe outing in the winter.

For hiking the trails were great. I would like to come back when I have more time to explore.

There's a few different trails you can take here. We talked to a woman before we went in and she warned us about some big trees that had fallen over some of the trails and that we would have to find our way around the ,she was right. The paths weren't marked very well. You pop out onto the the pond a few times in different places so I think next time we'll bring our fishing poles.
