The Newton Blackmour State Trail currently runs 9 miles along an old rail corridor between downtown Black Creek and just east of the town of Seymour, where it continues as the Duck Creek Trail
east of Vandenheuvel Road. Eventually the trail will run another 14 miles west from Black Creek to New London. The trail's name is derived from pieces of the names of the cities it connects: New London, Shiocton, Black Creek, and Seymour.
The trail is open to cyclists, walkers, equestrians, cross-country skiers, snowshoers and snowmobiles and is also wheelchair accessible. Snowmobiles are not allowed on the Duck Creek Trail, however.
On-street parking is available in Black Creek and Seymour.
