As mentioned by others this HAS been a great trail.
Currently the trail is in very rough shape due to horse traffic. The type of material used last year to resurface the trail is great for walking and wheeled traffic but is damaged when horses are ridden at a gallop.
Recent attempt to ride resulted in my wife and I leaving the trail and finding a paved road to ride back on rather than endure the constant pounding.
I am trying to contact Vermont Dept of Forest ,Parks, and Rec about this but so far have had no luck getting a response.
I will update this review if new info comes or if the status of the trail surface changes,
Started the trail at the S. Hero end and the little ferry wasn’t operating yet but still a lovely walk
Even on a cloudy day in November this trail is a pleasure to run, ride or walk. Great views of the lake and very peaceful smooth trail.
Wonderful trail. Nine miles of crushed stone and hard pack dirt from southern end to Castleton University parking lot. I would not use a thin tire road bike. Beware: the southern end is a dead end 2 miles from Poultney and does not have a parking lot as indicated on the trail map. You must park in Poultney in a well marked lot off of Bentley Ave.
I am still catching my breath from the stunning scenery I saw on my ride 5 days ago on this path. It is short, but you can extend the ride by going north and just keep taking any right turn that will lead you toward Lake Champlain. Just a truly wonderful area to ride my bike and breath that oh-so-fresh air. The TrailLink description is very accurate.
Rode from Morrisville to Cambridge Junction and back. Enjoyable ride that follows the river and meanders through corn and forests. Be sure to check out the falls. Stopped at Lost Nation Brewery at the end to rehydrate¿¿
I rode the causeway today and all construction has been completed. It was a wonderful ride !
Rode East to West trail is mostly cinder and well maintained crossing Route 2 in West Danville is dangerous VT drivers do not give way, Joe's Pond is a great place for a dip and a meal, next time I will end there for both.
I rode most of the western half of the trail and found it to be enjoyable. On the plus side, it is scenic, wide enough in most spots to allow riders in both directions, not overly crowded, very manageable hills, and mostly well marked. On the negative side, the gravel is looser than many trails I’ve been on, there are no benches to sit and take a break, and surprisingly, the trail is more wide open than I anticipated. It was up around 90 the day I rode it and it would have been uncomfortable if it wasn’t overcast. And being more open, there wasn’t as much wind protection as found in more forested trails. But overall, it is an enjoyable trail.
Rode the “Burlington Greenway” from Oakledge Park. Not a good starting point. We had to deal with detour on city roads. Better starting point is the Burlington Waterfront Park. No where did see a sign for “Island Line Rail Trail”. The trail is along the lake , flat, paved with macadam and shady. You will not be alone on this trail. Many nice views of the lake. The trail turns to a hard dirt/cinder surface about 1.5 miles from the closed causeway reopen date for the causeway is early sept. 2020.a sign for see a sign for
The trail was an easy and serene bike ride, we enjoyed it very much. Definitely recommend if you are in the area.
The causeway is still closed, due to reopen in Sept 2020. Another suggested parking lot is Leddy Park. There is a longish detour from Oakledge Park to the waterfront that is better to avoid.
