Stunning in every season, Vermont offers first time active travelers a delightful outdoor experience along gentle trails boasting scenery from mountains to lakes.

We’ve developed an exciting self-guided cycling itinerary that highlights some of the best landscapes and experiences in Vermont. Discover the history, culture, and natural splendor of Burlington, Vermont’s largest city, which is home to wild animals and working farms as well as a thriving arts scene and many museums.

You’ll also encounter sweeping vistas of Lake Champlain, New York’s rugged Adirondack Mountains, unobstructed view of Vermont’s highest peak, Mount Mansfield, and the richly scenic Winooski River.

Lake Champlain is a natural freshwater lake, and the sixth largest lake in the US, which is vital for the survival of 300+ species of birds. Cycling along Lake Champlain you’ll enjoy spectacular scenery, vital historic towns and cities, family-owned shops and many restaurants which feature fresh foods from local Vermont farms.
