Through a partnership between BPRW, Winooski Valley Park District, The Intervale Center and Rock Point – Burlington is developing a world-class shared trail network. These areas conserve the rare plants and diverse animals that make their homes in the Queen City, and provide equitable and inviting access to our many natural areas for the benefit of all our city’s citizens and visitors.
The first trail opened in September 2019! The trail starts at Salmon Hole, follows the Winooski River and stays within the silver maple floodplain forest before crossing through to the Ethan Allen homestead. From the homestead the trail then crosses 127 and ascends through the wooded Ethan Allen park, one of Burlington’s urban wilds, before descending to the parking lot off of North Ave.
