Not well marked but Long Pond is almost entirely in view. The trail is also on Google maps.

Considering it’s close proximately to the Capital district, Grafton Park and the Long Pond are both clean and very well maintained.

Perfect for my 5yr old & 8yr old. Nice picnic spots too.

Not well marked at all. I ended up having to turn around after .5mi because of a swampy area and no blazes. Lake view was nice, however and beach area was a good alternative.

The trail was extremely muddy (to be expected this time of year) but the many rocks helped us avoid much of the goop, and some recent maintenance was done to help with drainage on the trail. The trail is relatively flat, with a few upward climbs (and accompanying downward treks). My children and I enjoyed the few spots where you could look out across the lake, and wished there were more such vantage points.
