Island Line Bike Ferry

Bike to the Champlain Islands!

Biking the causeway to the Island Line Bike Ferry is one of our favorite activities in the late-summer & fall.

We suggest starting in Burlington (about 30-40 miles round trip) however, if you’re interested in a shorter ride, park at the Causeway/Airport park in Colchester. This will significantly cut down on miles without sacrificing the most beautiful section of the bike path.

This map will help you plan your ride!

Once you’re off the ferry, explore South Hero! Grab maple creemees & apples at Alleholm Farm or sip wine at Snowfarm Vineyard before continuing on your ride.
