Biking this trail can be quite surprising. One moment you're passing under the freeway, the next you're cycling with fields of ripe corn on one side and dark forest on the other. You're lost in the suburbs, and suddenly you emerge onto a street that leads to a tiny park with a spectacular view of Lake Champlain (Overlook Park on Spear Street). It is surely worth exploring!

This path provides lots of alternatives for getting from here to there throughout the City of South Burlington.

Other Information

The entire trail is illustrated on the Burlington Bike Map, published by the Burlington Bicycle Council - get it free from Local Motion or at Burlington's Department of Public Works!
