The Burlington Bike Path is now called the Island Line Bike Trail (although signs still say Burlington Bike Path). It starts off paved and meanders along the eastern shore of Lake Champlain. The views are beautiful. We rode the path off-season in late May and it was very quiet. I imagine the summer months bring more tourists and gets very busy. The trail is often narrow and could easily get crowded with a lot of riders / walkers. There are times the path goes off into neighborhoods for a short time and then continues along the lake until it finally reaches the Colchester Causeway. You actually come out of a neighborhood across from a little park. You have to cross the street to continue onto a gravel path that then leads to the Colchester Causeway. The Causeway goes out 3 miles into Lake Champlain and the views are amazing. We had to stop before reaching the end of the bike path because the ferry was not running to allow us to finish. This was one of our favorite rail trails we have ridden.
