Follow This Abandoned Railroad Trail For One Of The Most Unique Hikes In Connecticut

When cars and trucks became commonplace, traveling and transporting goods by train declined and much of our railway was deserted. These rail lines are being revived and turned into hiking trails throughout the Nutmeg State. Take this abandoned railroad trail for an easy but scenic adventure through the eastern part of Connecticut.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
