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.

Always a favorite...this has been a highlight of our trips to Burlington for over 20 years. Great way to start the day for morning exercise or relax with an evening stroll along the lake.

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.

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.
