Outdoors with Kids: Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont

Bike from the urban core of Burlington past peaceful wooded shoreline to the grand causeways that cross Lake Champlain—all on level-graded, dedicated bike paths! This delightful bike trip has so many highlights: a flat, easy grade for the duration, a beautiful wooded shoreline ride, interesting stops and beaches along the way, a giant causeway that slices through Lake Champlain, and a bike ferry connecting sections of the causeway.

The path is paved for most of the way, and the causeway is fine-packed stone dust. Any type of bike will be able to make the trip, and even the youngest bikers will have a great time on shorter sections. There is some street cycling on this route, but all street sections of the Island Line Trail south of Grand Isle are on quiet residential streets, are marked clearly, and have separate lanes for bikes; north of Grand Isle some sections are along a state highway with a shoulder and are recommended only for older or more experienced bikers.
