Hiking details

The Island Line Trail is a 14-mile (23 km) rail trail located in northwest Vermont. It comprises the Burlington Bike Path (Burlington), Colchester Park (Colchester) and the Allen Point Access Area (South Hero). The trail follows the route of the Island Line Trail built by the Rutland Railroad in 1901. A portion of the trail is located on a causeway that crosses from Colchester to South Hero, Vermont. Due to a 200-foot (61 m) gap in the causeway, the organization Local Motion operates the Island Line Bike Ferry to shuttle cyclists across the gap.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]
