Have you ever dreamt of walking on water like your favourite superheroes? Well, if you're a biking fanatic who's willing to drive only two hours away from Montreal, prepare to be astounded!
Located in Vermont, Island Line Trail (aka Colchester Causeway) is an epic 14-mile rail trail that you've just gotta experience! You can see all of Lake Champlain as you fly over the water on your bike and create memories of a lifetime.
Island Line Trail is a pretty long bike path, though still labeled as fairly easy and absolutely picturesque! PLUS, they have a ferry that takes you from Colchester to South Hero, Vermont. The causeway between them is a 200-foot gap, so the Island Line Bike Ferry shuttles cyclists across the gap, giving them a little break!
