The Air Line Trail is one of the coolest trails in Connecticut. This 46-mile rail-to-trail project is built over an abandoned rail line. Rail-to-trails are great projects: they take land that would otherwise be left unused and allow it to be utilized by the community. Since rail lines are almost entirely flat, these lengthy trails make for wonderful and easy hikes that the entire family can enjoy. Their extensive length and multiple access points means that they’re perfect for just about any type of hiker. You can divide them up into very short segments, or take a lengthy trek across several legs for an hours-long adventure. Like most rail-to-trail projects, the Air Line Trail travels through several great little cities and landmarks. One of the coolest sights you’ll see on the Air Line Trail is a tri-state marker where you can stand in three different states at once!
