Air Line Trail Spur

Colchester, CT

Now a linear state park and trail, a railroad once carried passengers and freight to Colchester along this path.  This is looking away from Colchester.  Passengers would see the scene below when arriving in Colchester.

One can now walk this trail for a little over 3 miles to where it meets the main Air Line Trail.  On this day however, the trail looked a little treacherous with the ice, so I'll have return sometime when the weather is nicer.

  1. In the Midwest many of these abandon rail lines have become bike trails. linear parks are a great idea. In winter they can be use as snowmobile trails.
