We spent the day recently in a Burlington while on vacation in Stowe. Our 12 and 15 year olds were eager to ride the bike path. It's a beautiful area and a safe place to ride. We were comfortable with them riding without us while we explored the waterfront. The only suggestion is the path north of the boardwalk isn't... More

Many scenic vantage points along the trail interspersed with wooded areas and houses. Well maintained with no overgrowth. Weekend was crowded e specially closer to the waterfront. Lots of skaters, walkers with dogs and runners made for some serious navigation issues from time to time. Recommend parking away from one of the downtown lots and driving to an access road... More

This was our second time on the bike path. We retained very happy memories of a trip we did here many years ago, and nothing has changed. We did it this time with three of our 4 children, ages 7, 12 and 17. We rented a tag-along bike and also three regular bikes from Local Motion, which is conveniently located... More

Very relaxing and serene walk along the Champlain river. Go to recharge your spirit. Nothing I didn't like about it.

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.
