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.

We rent bikes from a local bike shop and rode along the trail. Very scenic trail with marbles as base. Great to watch boats. Downside is there were a lot of mosquitoes.

Nice bike path in general. We enjoyed the work out equipment located along the way. This trail allows you very near the lake.

We hired an electric bike and normal bike from North Star Sports on Main St. They were very helpful and bikes were good quality. Pack some food from August Bakery (great food) a block from bike shop, as there is nothing on the bike trail....More

Yes. It would be best to call the local bike shops for availability: Local Motion and Burlington Segways are 2 shops.
