Enter the main entrance of the park and stay left on Long Pond Road. After 400 meters you will see the sign for the Long Pond Trail on the left.
The Long Pond Trail is a short trail with several spurs that access blinds overlooking a sewage lagoon and Long Pond. Long Pond is a large pond that is separated from the ocean by the grassy dunes and beach. This close proximity to the ocean means it is usually full of ducks and other seabirds such as seagulls. The blinds have many small wooden windows that open up to provide views of the pond without disturbing the birds.
This trail is available in the Heritage Trails of Grand Manan book. The guidebook can be ordered below or purchased on the island at the Whale and Seabird Research Station, Island Arts and Crafts, Grand Isle Pharmacy, Harbour Gifts in Grand Harbour, and the Grand Manan Museum.
