This 10-foot wide paved path parallels Riverside Avenue on its northern side and has plenty of room for bicyclists and inline skaters. Path users can avoid most intersections on the often busy Riverside Avenue. The path is mostly urban, passing restaurants, gas stations, a car wash, and a laundromat, but fleeting views can be found overlooking the Intervale and the Winooski River. The trail intersects with Intervale Road, which leads to the Intervale Trail and eventually the Ethan Allen Homestead trail network. You'll also find the small parking lot and trailhead to the Salmon Hole and River Walk Trails near the eastern end of the path. The path has textured green paint to let vehicle drivers know this is a recreational path at many of the driveway intersections.
The Riverside Avenue Bikepath ends at the Winooski River Bridge. The path does not continue onto this four-lane bridge, though there is a cement sidewalk on the western side. If you are riding a bike from the Riverside path to the bridge, it is recommended that you cross the street and enter traffic, or walk your bicycle on the sidewalk.
Path is accessible anywhere along Riverside Avenue. Western terminus: Community Health Centers at the intersection of Winooski Ave, Willard St, and Riverside Ave. Eastern terminus: Winooski River Bridge on Colchester Ave/US 7.
