 Island Line Trail, also known as Colchester Causeway, is located in Vermont and it is an epic 14-mile rail trail that you must try! I swear it is almost too epic to handle. You can see all of Lake Champlain as you fly over the water on your bike and create memories of a life time!

 Island Line Trail is a pretty long bike path, but it is still labeled as fairly easy and absolutely stunning! PLUS, they have a ferry that takes you from Colchester to South Hero, Vermont. The causeway in-between them is a 200-foot gap so the Island Line Bike Ferry shuttles cyclists across the gap, giving them a little break!
