Red Rocks Park is one of the most beautiful parks in South Burlington. Trails loop through hemlock and pine forests and emerge onto the rocky shoreline, where there are spectacular views of Lake Champlain, Shelburne Bay, and the Adirondacks. A very popular swimming spot. It's a short bike ride from Red Rocks park to Oakledge Park and the beginning of the Island Line Trail. Biking is not allowed on Red Rock's foot trails.
