We rented bikes at a bike shop a couple of blocks from the bike path. It was a great bike path, lots of great views. Good for kids. Fun outdoor activity.

We hired our bikes from the place on the lake front whose profits are used to further improve cycling facilities in Burlington. We completed the whole bike path over a very hot day - we took our time (both 60+) and stopped off at one of the beaches and also spent some time at the end of the causeway admiring... More

This bike path follow Lake Champlain and is a flat path. heading north on the path from Burlington, we traveled 20 km the the end of the Causeway. A ride of 1.5 hrs one way. Take water with you as there is no place to stop for refreshments. Well recommended!

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.
