A Beautiful Hidden Gem!
Special Interest: Dog ParkGroup PlayHikingSports - WaterWalking
Little Long Pond is private lands managed by the Rockefeller family, but shared with the public. Dogs can swim in the area off leash. The pond is a little wonderful oasis where you and your dog can unwind and spend an afternoon.
Parking area is one mile west of Seal Beach on Peabody Drive (Route 3). You can access the pond through Acadia National Park from the north. To the north you can also see Jordan Pond House.
There are several small hiking trails (0.5 – 2 miles) that go around the pond. On the west side of the pond is Harbor Brooke Trail and David and Neva’s Trail. The Friend’s trail goes from the carriage roads to the southern end of the lake. The Jordan Stream Trail goes to the Acadia National Park. Maps of Acadia National Park are located here.
