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.
The entire trail is 12 miles to the "cut", at which point you have to take a bike ferry over to South Hero.
I believe it is approximately 15 miles in length. We usually park near downtown Burlington and bike up to the end of the causeway (but haven’t taken ferry boat to other side cutting it short a bit) and back. In total that trip is about 20 miles. So a good distance.

We started at the aquarium and went north but did not even get to the ferry and then went south for a bit to see that area.
7 miles in Burlington. Colchester causeway adds about 4 miles.
Hi, we biked about 5 miles round trip but I believe the path is easily twice that going one way.
Starting from Waterfront Park in Burlington, if you went all the way north on the bike path to the bike ferry on the causeway it is 9.8 miles (one way). If you only went as far as the bridge over the Winooski River it is 5 miles. A bit further than that (maybe 5.5 miles) you get to Airport Park, which is a large park with soccer fields, playgrounds, public bathrooms.
Going south from Burlington you follow the lake and weave a little bit through a neighborhood and then on to Oakledge Park. Another nice Park with similar amenities though right on the lake. A little further, past the pavilions brings you to a tiny little beach with nice flat rocks to sit on and look back at Burlington, 2 miles away on the bike path.
In the summer, and weekends in the fall, going north, the bike path includes a bike ferry for $5.00 that continues onto the islands. Gorgeous, quiet roads and really flat with the perimeter roads all with little traffic and amazing views.
by the way ferry only open on weekends now, the trail is a great one, can be busy on nice weekends, watch out for walkers please
From Burlington to the north end = 8 miles.
If you want to extend your cycling fun, you can take the bike ferry ($8.00 Round trip) to the next Island.
