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.

This is a great place to walk or bike right on the shores of Lake Champlain. We took a nice long walk, and then sat on a swinging bench at Watefront Park and watched one of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen. So cool...More

Walkers and bikers share this path so beware. Beautiful setting. Connects to beach and beyond very crowded on weekends. Lots of paid parking available

Amazing bike path on rail to trail path, with a ferry that takes you across a cut in the causeway. The path runs along lake Champlain and is just beautiful.
