Air Line State Park Trail (Multi-town overview)

This linear gravel/pebble covered trail is flat, easy and travels for almost 50 miles in The Last Green Valley. 3 sections: South from E. Hampton to Windham (22 miles), and North from Windham to Pomfret (21 miles) plus the Thompson section (6.6 miles). Scheduled for the the fall of 2020, the 4-mile section from Pomfret to Putnam will be refurbished, regraded and include new road crossing bridges. Originally used from 1873 through 1955 as a Boston to New York railroad, the “Ghost Train” was seen traveling this route in earlier days. Now a place to frequent in all seasons: hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, jogging, horseback riding and even walking your leashed dog. Parking locations, section maps, videos and historical information available on the website. No fee.
