“Burlington, Vermont bike path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

This is a great path along Lake Champlain. We all enjoyed riding our bikes along the path. Beautiful views. We did this in the morning, as it does get busy in the afternoon. There is a bike rental right at the path.

“So neat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

I went on a Fall ride and practically blew off the causeway but such a treasure to bike along gorgeous Lake Champlain! Stop at Skinny Pancake after for lunch right near the free waterfront parking lot. Then to top it off, a maple creamy along the bike path. You've gotta love Burlington!

“Beautiful and easy ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We are so glad we did this in Burlington! We rented bicycles at Local Motion on the waterfront and headed north up to the causeway which is about 7 miles(?) and then did the return back. It is a mostly easy and flat ride that is very scenic and there are many photo opps along the way.

Highly recommended for all ages!

We walked this(so far ) and my husband then biked the whole of it. It's wonderful! However NO FACILITIES! In mid October when there were many tourists kicking about needing restrooms or a cuppa! Burlington, shame on you!

“Great way to see the area!”

Don't miss it - whether you bike, walk, jog or take a Segway tour, the bike path is fantastic. Scenic, historic and well maintained.
