Gorgeous lake views with a paved path for bikes or walking. There are nice seating areas if you need to rest. There is a dog park for off leash fun and a skateboard park where you can watch the daring jumps.

From downtown Burlington to the causeway to the bike ferry. Bike it all or walk just a piece. I LOVE the views of the mountains, the amazing water fowl and the boats on the lake. Absolutely a “must do” while in Vermont.

This is a lovely, flat, paved and hard-packed dirt path that ambles from city to suburb to wide open lakeside causeway. You can even take a little bike ferry to continue out to South Hero Island and ride along the road to a “not to...More

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