When in Burlington, VT, we made our way down to the Island Line Trail. Actually, it is more of a paved path then a “trail”.
The “trail” runs alongside Burlington Bay, which goes out into Lake Champlain. It gives you a great vantage point over the bay and the lake. However, I think it’s about time the city trims the tops of trees a bit.
This is looking down the Island Line Trail from a lookout point.
Here is a view of Lake Champlain. The land mass way off in the distance, is New York State.
It was a pretty hazy day, so the NY is a bit obscured off in the distance. You can see the break water just above the top of the trees.
It’s a very peaceful walk along the “trail”. There a benches along the way as well, so you can give you feet a rest once in a while.
Another view of Lake Champlain. The water in the forefront would be considered Burlington Bay. Again, you can see the break water.
If you follow the Island Line Trail further south, you will end up on the Boardwalk, which will lead you to the Burlington Boathouse, ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center and the Rubenstein Ecosystem Sci Center.
Thanks for looking.
