Maps available for Burlington and Rutland
Pick up a FREE paper copy of the map at the following locations: Local Motion (Burlington Bike path), ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center (bottom of College Street), Burlington Parks and Recreation office (Pine Street), Burlington Chamber of Commerce (Main Street).

GSI installations along the tours include permeable pavers, Silva Cells, rain gardens, gravel wetlands, curb bump-outs and curb-cuts, bioretention (research), green roofs, and notable mature trees. Each provides a valuable stormwater management function. All sites are either publicly owned or visible from the public right of way. We encourage you to respect all safety and traffic rules while enjoying this route.

Rutland Parks and Recreation (www.rutlandrec.com), Rutland Natural Resources Conservation District (https://www.vacd.org/rcd), and Rutland Regional Planning Commission (https://www.rutlandrpc.org) offices will also have maps available.
