I love this trail. I start from the Day Pond State Park parking lot, and usually take the blue-blazed trail. When it comes to the first big wide opening into the woods, I head straight, and do not immediately follow the blue trail signs. This leads up a few uphills to get your heart going...then it flattens out for most of the rest. There's a nice waterfall, and a few man-made bridges along the way. Trail markings are a bit difficult to spot now and then, but just go back to the most recent one and look around - eventually you'll see it.

i use the East Hampton trail head for this trail. love the river for sceanery (lower trail) bit buggy though. i suppose the water is to thank for that. the actual Airline trail (upper trail) is pretty straight and not much to look at in the area i was in. just lots of woods. there are Munzee tags to find also if thats your thing. i remember jumping off the viaduct in this area when i was in high school. good times. enjoy.

5 miles! It keeps going and going all the way to Willimantic. It's actually more like 20! Then you have to turn around and go back. We actually did a total of 28 miles with a 9 year old and 14 years old and they did it. It was absolutely beautiful and I recommend to all families. Just keep track of the mile markers.
