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 had a great couple of hours on a very cold day following this path and then along the causeway which was extremely windy but what a view would recommend.

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

I travel on this bike path from April until snow flies, sometimes into mid to late November. It is very safe as well as having spectacularly beautiful views of the Adirondack Mountain of New York state.

This is a number-one family-friendly destination in Burlington. You can rent bikes at Loca-motion or bring your own! Get amazing views of Lake Champlain and stop at North Beach or Leddy Beach on your trip for a dip. North Beach even has a fun playground...More

Rented bikes by the lake downtown. Very nice people at the bike shop. 20 miles round trip to the end where the bike ferry docks and back to DT. Half of the trail was unpaved. Pretty ride, but tough ride on a rental bike!

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

I believe it is approximately 15 miles from end to end. You can, however, pick it up in multiple spots to make it longer or shorter.
