Great bike and walking trail!

This is the third trail I have enjoyed walking on this month. It was by far an awesome experience and the best one of the three. We walked to North Beach front the Echo Museum. It... read more

This is the third trail I have enjoyed walking on this month. It was by far an awesome experience and the best one of the three. We walked to North Beach front the Echo Museum. It was great! We were able to walk side by side as the trail is wide, bikers that past us were very courteous and let... More

Endless bike paths around Burlington and surrounding area. A very bike friendly place.... plenty of places to rent bikes and ride for distance or with families.

We have ridden the southern part of the Burlington Bike Path and enjoyed it but never made it up to the causeway. So this time we decided to start at the top. Taking a leisurely car ride from Canada through the Champlain Islands to South Hero, we turned right onto South St and then another right onto Martin Road to... More

We walked a portion of this path and it was wonderful. There was a boardwalk that deviated from it along the lake that was just for walkers with benches and swings which was very pleasant. We watched a spectacular sunset from this one night after a thunderstorm rolled through. Great place!

Lovely views and not hard at all. It's a long path but very plain. I'm not a good biker, but I spent at least 2 hours on this path.

The Burlington bike path and its connecting bike paths allows once to ride or walk from Oakledge Park in the southend all the way to Grand Isle if one so chooses. The path is either paved or finely packed gravel and it is heavily used on weekends by tourists and local Vermonters alike. There is a reasonably priced bike ferry... More

We biked 20 miles on this path (it was the easiest 20 miles I have ever biked) we rented a bike from local motion I believe and biked as far as we could on the causeway. This path is beautiful especially the causeway I have never been on a path like this! It is worth the effort! I traveled with... More

My wife and I biked about 15 miles each way from downtown Burlington to South Hero and back. It's flat easy riding and very pretty scenery along the lake. The bike ferry is fun and unique. Great exercise and met some nice people along the way.

Such a great path!! :) Gorgeous views of Lake Champlain. We rented bikes from near the start of the path, which were in great condition. Biked all the way to South Hero Island (there is a Bike Ferry to get you across the Cut), where there is a wonderul little Farmstand/Market with delicious grill and cute animals (goats, Shetland ponies,...

We rode from downtown Burlington out onto the causeway, and we took the charming bike ferry over to South Hero Island. This is a flat ride with beautiful scenery - much of the ride is along the lake. Round trip with a circle around South Hero was about 30 miles. We really enjoyed it and plan to return.
