Burlington Bike Path Under Water

This just in from the good folks at Local Motion

"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 Perkins 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."

So, if you're thinking of going for a bike ride or a jog on the Burlington Bike Path, think again. Unless you bring your swimmies, a snorkel and some flippers, it's best if you stay well clear of this area until the water has receded and the damage has been repaired. Fingers crossed that the damage is not so bad. The bike path draws scads of tourists to the waterfront and is one of the city's major attractions during the summer. 

If you see other spots on the bike path with similar damage or submersion, let us know.
