Awesome bike ride with beautiful views of Lake Champlain! Flat the whole ride with many nice spots to sit on large flat rocks and enjoy the scenery. I’ve heard it gets crowded but I went on a Tues evening and I was practically the only person out there!

Deducting a star due to crowds and bugs BUT otherwise this is a really unique trail - flat, elevated and in the middle of Lake Champlain. Views are astounding. Surrounded by the lake with Adirondacks on one side and Green Mountains on the other. Just, WOW, but beware the crowds, kids and tourist bikers who don’t know bike etiquette.

Excellent bike ride, just foot traffic and bikes. Which is nice because I hate to ride amongst traffic. Beautiful views of lake, and mountains in the distance. Peaceful with pull-offs to enjoy the view.
Went on a Monday afternoon and it was super chill. Do it!

This is the perfect walk with amazing views of Lake Champlain. It’s also a great bike ride, including a paid ferry trip to Chicago next to the Lake Champlain Islands.

This is a must do, whether you’re a local or just visiting. It’s easy, it’s scenic and it’s a fabulous way to see the lake.

The bike ferry that connects to the Champlain Islands is operational and run by Local Motion in Burlington. This really adds to this already great walk or ride.

Absolutely beautiful bike path from Burlington out across Lake Champlain to South Hero. We did this during our long weekend in Burlington and it was by far the highlight! Once on South Hero we continued to Allenholm farm and orchards and then followed up with a stop at Snow Farm vineyard.

Not a hike, since it stays flat the whole time. But it's great for biking, running, and walking. Views are spectacular. I went for a run on a Sunday afternoon and it wasn't super crowded -- even parked my car at the mills point parking lot (the one closest to the causeway).

It was a good long walk. Really good sites and pockets of shade along the way. The people were friendly. Plenty of folks on bikes and walking.

Easy walk with an awesome view of the lake! Walked along a few side trails bringing us to the most beautiful forest scenery!

Great ride for a date! And it can be a sociable outing with others met along its length, or an open vista occasion for solo reflection.
