From Route 127 in Colchester, turn on Porter's Point Road. Turn left at the four-way stop onto Airport Road. About a mile from the intersection is Airport Park. Park here and start down the trail that runs along Airport Road. The trail soon turns into the woods and runs along Colchester Bog. Shortly after crossing Mills Point Road (be sure to stop and look), you will be out on the lake.
Fabulous place to ride out and enjoy the lake. Also a ferry to the North Hero side!Thank |
The causeway is a fabulous section of the Burlington Bikepath that goes straight out into the lake ending a couple hundred ft from the South hero side were there is a fairy that can take you across for a fee. The part of the old rail trail that brings you over the water( 3.25 miles out from road) is a spectacular smooth ride( packed dirt trail over a huge concrete blocks making up the base. You can stop anywhere and find a nice rock to meditate, swim from, have your lunch, or just hang out enjoying the fabulous view. Highly recommended place to reconnect mindfully with the earth. Peace & Love!?????Thank |
1Chain, you are not missing anything. This is part of the Burlington Recreation Path. Great for family rides, jogging or other leisurely activities, but it is not a mountain bike trail. It is a rail trail/rec path.
However, at Airport Park in Colchester, where many park to access the causeway section of the trail, there is a small section of single track trails in the woods on the west side of the park. They are perfect for kids learning to ride singletrack.Thank |
Unless I am missing other trails, this is just a nice rocky path that takes you way out to lake champlain. Great for a cruise or run but its just a straight shot.Thank |
