Nice forest area with a beach overlooking the lake. Very pleasant, nice easy walk.

Nice little trail around the pond. In the winter it freezes over and ppl Nordic ski/skate. Very pretty.

Great bike trail but, really, this is a nice place to take a stroll close to the city after having a meal with friends. It’s not a hike through nature, but more of a stroll in town beside the lake.

Excellent and beautiful trail to walk, run or bike on. The trail takes you right through lake Champlain and the views are obviously stellar. One of the best easy trails to do in Chittenden County

Nice up and down trail. Much board walk. Liked it!

Trail not very well marked.

Hiked 01/01/19. Great hike with multiple different trails from the Audubon Center, but the parking lot was very icy and some patches on the trail were as well, I would recommend crampons if hiking in the winter. Will definitely be back

Marked well and different terrains.

Scenic yet some work involved. Trail in good order.

Made a longer loop hike starting out on the burns trail, which was a nice walk through the woods, to the cedar point trail which had beautiful views of the bay and access to the shore. Returned via the beach bypass trail to the Allen trail. Highly recommend this beautiful park, many different hikes and loops

Needed a walk a day after gorging on thanksgiving dinner the prior day. This was perfect...nice varied scenery from fields with cows to forest setting to the gorgeous view of the bay. Would love to return in the summer or spring because it seems there would be tons of bird activity.

My honey and I weren’t able to walk the entire trail because the wind was a bit much that day. Pristine trail, ideal for walking or biking. Every city/town should have a trail like this! We plan to return with our children and bikes.

Great hike with dog

Great short hike, it is not "easy" if you are just looking to wander in the woods on a semi flat path. There is some elevation gain and there is a steep push at the top to get to the window. It was perfect for someone who is just looking for a quick hike that has a little bit of a work out.

I loved everything minute of this hike, but I would not rate it is easy. It is a continual uphill walk through the woods, over roots and rocks. I felt like I needed to be looking down the entire time to watch my footing. The trail was a very well marked at the bottom and the top, but the middle section less so and I know I got off the trail at some point. Nevertheless, I loved this trail. I walked up the trail, and took the road back down which was beautiful itself but in a different way.

This is really dug a magical place. The trees, the rocks, the water...it’s all just so lovely.

Great place to run and take a quick dip in the pond. There’s a rope swing on the north peninsula and a pretty easy cut off trail to find it.

Easy bike ride. At times path is congested with people. Better views at the northern end of the trail. Not so in the beginning.

Excellent fun trail. At times it does get congested but it does ease up. Recommend weekdays as opposed to weekends. The ferry ride is well worth the $4 each way and allows you to visit the island for some good food and ice cream. I understand from the ferry driver that on weekends the line gets very long.

Good for locals needing a quick walk. Otherwise just a field next to a highway. Drove out here on vacation hoping to get a pretty and short morning walk in.

Easy walk with nice fall colors.

An easy 1 mile each way hike that I could do with my toddler on my back. Beautiful views of the lake and Adirondacks. The only complaint is that it was extremely crowded, but we were expecting that since we went on a beautiful fall Sunday so no big deal.

Nice trails and lovely lookouts.

It says 3 miles but it feels longer, parking is also quite problematic with the limited number of spaces and the rules about not parking on the road side. But the hike itself is beautiful.

We hiked the loop indicated on this map which circled the entire park and was about 2.5 hours, But there are a variety of shortcuts. The trail crosses a brook, descends to a beautiful cove on the shore of Lake Champlain that ideal for a swim (too cold in mid September) and ascends (about 550 ft.) to two lookout points, one that views the lake Champlain Islands and northern Adirondack Mountains in New York state to the east, and another facing west to view Mt. Mansfield. There is plenty of interesting terrain, rock formation and forest vegetation to keep the trail interesting. You're not likely to see too much wildlife, except maybe for groups of elementary school children, as we did and locals walking their dogs (my sense is that the park is quite popular.) There was a poetry walk on one of the trails, with poems set along the path. Also there is a $4 entrance fee per person so bring cash.
