Rails-to-Trails Hall of Fame

A family takes a break on the Causeway.

I was ecstatic to discover my local trail, The Island Line, a Hall of Fame champion at Rail-to-Trails this month. You've heard me mention the Burlington Bike Path...well, this is a section of the greater 14 mile Island Line that links 3 communities. A segment, the Causeway, is a personal favorite for its marble lined section that arcs through Lake Champlain.

With a ferry service that links an open water section, several city parks, and two bridges, the line is especially suitable for families or anyone who wants a spectacular rail trail experience. My favorite time of the year is the fall where the leaves explode in color and Canadian geese rule the skies.

Here's to our special award!
