Lake Level Damages Island Line Trail

Lake Champlain’s current high water combined with southerly and westerly winds has damaged two sections of Vermont’s most popular multi-use trail.  In Burlington, the Burlington Bike Path by Perkin’s Pier is underwater and being eroded.  In South Hero, the northern section of the causeway (the Allen Point Access Area) has also been severely eroded.  Time will tell how bad the damage will be.   Stay tuned.
More pictures/tweets: Our superstar volunteer Annie Follett posted a few more photos on her blog, Annie Bikes. We’ve also heard from @spencervt on Twitter about erosion on the Causeway. Phelps Holloway sent in photos of the Causeway, see below.
