Outdoor Guide for the Greater Burlington Vermont Area

by Matt Hurlburt Group

GET OUT! This weekends weather looks to be about perfect to get outside and enjoy the late fall landscape. Whether you run, hike, walk, pedal, or paddle, there is something for everyone! (Then the snow flies, creating a winter wonderland of fun. But that is for another post.)


Looking to get out an engage your inner competitor? Hoping for a trail run? Vermont Sports Magazine has a calendar that direct you to fun events, festivals, and opportunities to spend some quality time in the "pain cave." 

If you venture out solo, or with a group of friends, there are numerous hiking opportunities in the greater Burlington area. RootsRated has a very accessible guide to some of the more popular hikes. Realistically, everyone has their favorites. Stop and ask at any outdoor retailer and you will get a number of "the best place to hike is" answers. Want to run, not hike? Load up your hydration system and head out to any of a number of trail running hotspots.


Maybe you want to see the Fall landscape my favorite way- from the seat of a bicycle. There are some world class routes to explore in Burlington and beyond. You can gravel grind by yourself, or with your own personal peloton on dirt roads with landscape that will take your breath away. Here are six routes that depart from the Greater Burlington area. Cruise the 14 miles of the Burlington Bike path/ Island Rail Trail, or challenge yourself to any of the six mountain gap rides. Find grades of 24%, mixtures of dirt road and pavement and get ready to let the legs and lungs burn. The benefit? Some incredible mountain views, and stops at some of the best general stores to refuel. Staff pick- we are partial to the home-crafted baked goods at the Lincoln General Store. 

 

Rather get muddy? Break out the fat bikes, full suspension, or rigid single speed (you know who you are!) and hit the trails. Again, we always recommend asking a local rider for the most prime riding, but this guide should head you in the right direction. 

Regardless of what you want to do outside, the greater Burlington area offers something for families of all ages. We hope to see you out there!
