Perfect way to get in some gorgeous views, get in a very nice bike ride and avoid roads with cars. Highly recommend.

Well executed bike path along the east shore of Lake Champlain.
Sep 2021
Very nice bike path along the shore of Lake Champlain. Will be awesome when the downtown section is completed as the present detour is a mess! We were able to access it directly from our North Shore Campsite. During rush hour it is about as fast to take a bike as drive along this section.

Awesome bike path!

We enjoyed walking the path with our dog. There are a lot of bikers and walkers. It's a well kept path, with many parks and beaches to enjoy along the way. Beautiful views of the lake!

Beautiful bike trail. Do not miss if you are in Burlington!
Sep 2021
We did the full trail and also took the boat to other side and that was a blast. It goes close to the lake and has beautiful view of lake, many places to stop and takes picture. Best view was when you go over the causeway with lake on both sides.

Paved Path with Lake Views

Relatively flat and paved for easy riding. You can stop along the way as we did at a sandy beach spot.

Unique and beautiful bike path
Aug 2021
Started out at the Echo Center by the shore in Burlington, VT and rode north towards the causeway. The whole ride was nice, but the absolute BEST part of the path was on the causeway. Never been on a path like that. Loved the scenery!

A Very Civilized Walk on Water
Aug 2021
We walked this on a warm sunny clear afternoon and boy was it worth it. Made up of giant blocks of marble pulled from nearby quarries, this was a causeway for a now abandoned railway.

Views across Lake Champlain of the Adirondacks are stunning. Even on a Sunday afternoon it was not terribly crowded and the interaction between pedestrians and bicyclists was quite civilized and polite.

I think this is one of the real attractions in Burlington. It is really a cycling town. You can ride you bike around the waterfront.

Lovely ride
Aug 2021
Road from Local Motion Bike Rentals in Burlington out to the break in the causeway, about 20 miles round trip, along with my wife and two daughters. Flat pretty much the whole way, with shade much of the way, paved much of the way and easy riding even when not. Beautiful, especially out on the causeway. Especially if you are not really a dedicated cyclist, this ride is highly recommended. We all had sore butts in the end, but that's just a function of length.
