Short trail in Burlington's Intervale, close to the Winooski River and near farms; this is a trail with a rural character right in the heart of the city.
Trail Activity
2.1 miles, Loop
Burlington (VT)
Packed Earth/Dirt


The Rena Calkins Trail, named for the last working dairy farmer in Burlington, is a flat trail that passes very close to the Winooski River. It's mostly wooded, and gets very muddy in the spring. It's great for walking dogs that are leashed. The trail is a loop that circles back behind the Gardener's Supply Pond and the Intervale Center, then joins the road and back to the trailhead.

If you'd like to explore more of this area, check out the Intervale Trail, a 2-mile trail that goes past farms, fields, and the river, following a dirt road and paths from one end of the Intervale to the other.
