Additional Information About the Burlington Greenway
The Burlington Greenway (Bike Path) is the crown jewel of parks system and is an immensely popular attraction during the summer, fall and spring and, increasingly, the winter months. Eight miles of paved path, with aggregate shoulders for runners and walkers, the path runs from just south of Oakledge park to the Winooski River to the north, and along the way runs through and connects many major parks and facilities situated on the Lake Champlain shoreline. The path also connects many residential neighborhoods and is situated close to several commercial districts. The path is currently undergoing major reconstruction, with many engineering upgrades, increased capacity, and multiple new pause places and connections with existing and improved facilities.
Up-to-date info can be found on the Burlington Greenway: Bike Path Rehabilitation Project page.
At certain times, the section of Path in Waterfront Park may be closed during events. Please read our official Path Closure Policy.
Parking & Restrooms (seasonal) are available at several points along the path.
This paved path is part of the longer longer Island Line Trail. The northern end finishes with a few miles of packed gravel on a narrow causeway, making for a spectacular view. Take the seasonal Bike Ferry to continue riding into the islands!

Work out outside on the UVM Medical Center Fitness Trail
Through generous support of UVM Medical Center, we’ve been able to add three fitness stations along the Greenway in the Urban Reserve. More stations are planned!
