Another Burlington VT trail: Island Line Trail

Hop on the spectacular 12-mile trail along Lake Champlain. The Island Line cruises through Burlington's waterfront and scoots out on the Colchester Causeway three miles into the middle of the lake! Public beaches, natural areas, and scenic vistas abound.
Come explore Vermont's most popular multi-use trail. Stop into the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center. Have a picnic lunch at the Mayes Landing picnic area at the base of the bridge or out on the causeway. Go for a swim. Bicycling, running, walking and inline skating are all popular trail activities. 
Trail Conditions: the 5 miles of trail in Colchester at the north end of the trail are unpaved and are not recommended for inline skates or road bikes with narrow tires. 3 of this 5 miles has fairly soft gravel coverage; some riders may need to get off and walk, though others will be able to ride right through. The last 2 miles are a harder packed gravel surface.
