Make Red Rocks number one on your list of beautiful walks in the Burlington area. The paths are gorgeous, winding their way around the park, leading up to the majestic cliffs overlooking the majestic Lake Champlain. This park is definitely not to be missed!

Lots of space, plentiful trails and comfortable picnic spots. The water front is the Lake Champlain eastern shore just North of Shelburne Bay and South of the City of Burlington. Access to the 7+ miles of waterfront bike path is easy and well maintained.

We came for a walk in the woods and some views, and got them. The trails through the woods (I think it said about 2.5 miles of trail) are nice, with some neat ledges in the middle. If you like walking in the woods, which...More

Flip-flops are ok for most of the park but if you want to explore the rocky shoreline then snickers would be better. You park right in the park. The park is only 100 acres but it has many different trails so hiking 1 mile is... More
