About 7 miles, mostly waterfront, partially shaded, plenty of bike rental spots nearby. Well used, felt safe. Goes by at least one of the Lake Champlain beaches.

Ready for a 30 mile perfect bike ride? The burlington bike path goes from Burlington VT, all the way across Lake Champlain, over a causeway across the lake into South Hero. To get all the way across there is a short bike ferry that runs from June-September. The path is mostly flat, breezy next to the lake, and absolutely stunning.... More

Very nice paved bike path, we rode about 6 miles one way, starting at King Street and ending at Windemere Way (there is a boat launch there with a portapotty) Nice scenery along the way, much easier to take photos when going southbound than northbound. People on the trail are friendly and are not mean to inexperienced riders or children.

Lake Champlain was gorgeous and so was this bike path! We saw a deer walk right by us! Great path for children and adults! We used it for a long run!

This is a beautiful bike path. We parked and rode from Leddy Park out to the causeway. Wow. It was pretty flat and very doable for casual bikers.

The trail is a mostly flat, mostly paved, very scenic ride extending from Burlington to South Hero. Although the last few miles are packed dirt and gravel, the trail is still excellent; we had only ridden on paved trails and found this portion quite easy. Near the end of the causeway, you can take a short ferry to a small... More

Wonderful vistas, bridges, wide well maintained paths. Goes on for miles and miles. I was part of a group bike adventure and we used this path at least 3 times on our rides.

We arrived on mid morning after checking the weather to make sure we had some sun and shade going along a good 3 hours ride before the bike ferry. We turned back as paved roads were done before the bike ferry. Those won't mind bumpy roads, should try out the bike ferry as we heard great reviews from the locals.... More

The first time I did this I got off the trail and missed the Mallets Bay stretch. Keep an eye out for those yellow trail markers (they'll save you). You will come to yellow signs that point your way to the bike ferry. Be prepared: if the wind is strong out of the south it will be a hard push... More

The Bike Path was very enjoyable. It is a flat bike path, along the lake, at times you will not see the lake. But many places to stop and view the lake... If you like to bike ride, take the trip....Make sure to take something to eat and drink...No places to buy water or snacks. Pack a picnic lunch and... More
