Bike Ferry Runs During August

Print More

The Colchester-South Hero Causeway is a former railroad track that shoots straight across Lake Champlain,.  You can bike, walk, or run along its narrow, gravel path, about five miles from either side, but there’s a 200-foot gap where the two paths don’t quite meet. 

At this time of year, though, there’s a solution.  On August weekends a team of volunteers from the Burlington non-profit group, Local Motion, operates a 3-minute "bike ferry" across the cut. 

The Bike Ferry runs a total of 13 days this season, each weekend in August, and also Labor Day weekend, from 10 to 6, rain or shine.  A $5 dollar donation is encouraged.  You can find more information on our website,  Just click on Vermont Edition.
