Tip of Rock Point
Rock Point is a small peninsula jetting out into Lake Champlain just to the north of North Beach in Burlington. It is truly a gem of a natural setting located within the city limits of Burlington. Rock Point is home to many non-profit and educational organizations, and much of the property is owned by the Episcopal Diocese of Vermont. Before visiting, please check-in at the Diocesan Office just past Rock Point School, near the community gardens.

Rock Point is a special place within the Champlain Valley as it is home to some unique natural communities that aren't common in Vermont, and it is also a worldwide destination for geologists to see a remarkable exposure of a geologic feature that provides a glimpse into the past from millions of years ago.
