Stretching from East Hampton all the way to the Massachusetts border in East Thompson, the Air Line State Park Trail is mecca for hiking, biking and horseback riding in Eastern Connecticut. The trail was built along the old Air Line Railroad route, which offered a direct path from Boston to New York beginning in the late 1800s. The route was heavily damaged in the mid 1950s from the floods that ransacked Connecticut and was no longer operational. The state took over the line, and the more than 50 miles of trails that were constructed along the old railroad route are generally flat and broad. Perhaps the greatest point of interest along the trail is the Lyman Viaduct, the tallest railroad bridge in Connecticut that spanned 1,100 feet across a deep gorge above Dickinson Creek. The best access to the viaduct is through Salmon River State Forest in Colchester

great peaceful ride can't wait to come back and explore the entire trial.
