To get to my plot from the University Heights bus stop at UVM, take the Number 1 Burlington City bus to the Cherry Street bus station. Then, proceed to board the Number 7 Burlington City Bus, and take it to the Burlington High School stop. From the bus stop, turn left onto Institute Road, and follow it past the High School. Then veer right onto Rock Point Road. You will pass the Rock Point School on your left. When the road splits, veer left. You will pass a sign that reads “To Trails” as you continue on. At the next split, continue on the left trail, following the sign that points towards Lone Rock Point. Continue through a field and continue straight through a steep, rocky decline in the ground. Continue walking straight for approximately 500 feet, and the plot will be om your right, very close to the edge of the rocks over the water.
This plot appealed to me because of how far away it feels from civilization. While the walk to Lone Rock Point begins in a populated area, the trails slowly take you away, passing only two secluded houses before arriving at my plot. This kind of tranquil serenity really speaks to me, and allows me to connect to the nature around me. My plot also has a lovely view of Lake Champlain. It is interesting to see which species grow and live so close to the water.
