Thompson – Hike Air Line State Park Trail

June 2 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Starting at the site of the Great East Thompson Train Wreck we will hike along the Air Line Trail. This part of the hike will be .7 miles to the Tri State Marker Trail. Along the way we will pass under an old cattle crossing bridge and over a stone arch river crossing built for the Rail Road cars to cross the river. To view the Arch from below we will have to go off the Air Line Trail down a steep hill to the river level (optional). A short way along the trail from here we will enter the .3 mile Tri State Marker Trail. This is the more challenging part of the hike along the MA and CT boarder going up and down a hilly rocky track to the granite marker. We will pause at the marker for a short rest and pictures. The return trip will again be along a rocky hilly route back to the Air Line Trail.
