Converted from the Central Vermont Railway to a bike path in the 1970s, this easy trail crosses through beaches and parks and offers great views of Lake Champlain, the Adirondacks and the city.

Really hard to beat the lakefront location of this well maintained bike path. Always worth a visit, when in Burlington, even if you don't have a bike along! Plenty of rentals in town, or, you can just take a walk. Gorgeous views.

This is an easy trail, well marked path, with lots of nice spots to stop along the way, even the science museum/aquarium. Enjoy!

Well maintained, well used, this is a must-do if you have your bikes or are renting them. From some places you are beside the lake, other parts you are going through the woods with only an occasional glimpse of the lake.

Such beautiful views! Construction on the path forced us onto main roads for a few minutes, but otherwise a perfect ride!

Very nice path, but ask if there are any detours in it due to (re)construction, because if yes, a bit annoying. Still, a nice place to visit by bike while in Burlington.

We loved our ride from downtown Burlington north to the "cut." The view on the lake is amazing; a definite highlight of our trip.

This is a fantastic path for bicyclists, walkers, joggers, folks just strolling along. Going north on the trail was easy with the wind at our back; the return trip was a challenge. The views are beautiful and the path runs along the lake for the...More
