Nice family friendly trail close by. Great for children to ride their bikes and walk your pets.
Amazing trail. It’s a great full one or two day trek. I did a 30 mile loop in just over 4 hours, which wasn’t very pleasant to endure, but if you gave yourself ~6 hours you could ride the entire trail (just over 20 miles) in one day, assuming you didn’t have to ride back.
Work on the 1/4 mile section in East Hampton from under Route 66 to the finished 2.5 mile Portland section continues to be delayed. The boardwalk is proving a harder task than I would have expected.
Portland has announced that it will begin to design trail improvements from the current end at camp Ingersoll toward Portland's center. I expect a year of design and land rights issues before work will start.
My friends and I recently rode this trail from the Sojourner Truth parking lot in New Paltz to the end in Wallkill, which is 8 miles. The scenery is nice, but not as nice as the New Paltz to Rosendale leg. The surface is mucky so I'd suggest a hybrid or mountain bike. There are a few, not heavily trafficked street crossings.
On Feb. 17, 2020, I walked from Smith Street, East Hampton west for 2.9 miles through the tunnel under Rt. 66 where the improved section ends. This section has a good surface of stone dust. There is only 0.25 mile gap between the final 0.7 mile section in East Hampton where that newer segment connects to the 2.3 mile long trail in Portland. There are plans to build a boardwalk through this section to make the connection, as the trail is a running stream with several inches of water.
The trail has a slight break at Main Street that is a bit confusing to navigate. When heading west, turn right on Main Street, cross Main Street at the light, and walk through the parking lot in front of the fire department building to pick up the trail.
At the eastern end of the trail, the bridge over the Willimantic River in Willimantic on the Hop River State Rail Trail received a new deck in 2019 and opened to the public in September 2019, thus making a direct connection to the Air Line Trail.
this trail now goes into the village of New Paltz. two years ago a section was added that went to South Ohioville road to where a diner is (closed the last time I was there). there is a continuation that connects to Wallkill Valley rail trail as part of the Empire State Trail. I plan on checking that out in the next few months. I am pretty sure part of that extension uses some back roads.
I love this trail. Well maintained. Very scenic. While hilly, I would say that the hills are not a problem for someone who cycles on a regular basis.
I have ridden this a few times. Very nice trail. Well maintained. Beautiful area.
The Boiceville trailhead is beautiful however the parking lot is too small
The trails in Vernon are among the most maintained of all trails in Central and Easter CT. There's plenty of parking along the trails which gives you easy access. The scenery is amazing including bridges, side paths, and tunnels.
It's too bad that so many of these trails don't allow the use of snowmobiles and off-road motorcycles. I see a lot of people complain about motored vehicles, but it really makes no sense to me. To me, both activities are equal and should have equal access. You have one group of people who enjoy hiking and biking, and another group of people who enjoy dirt-biking and snow-mobiling. Why does the hiking biking community always win out? Why do they get priority over the other group? Are the activities we enjoy less valuable/important than the activities you enjoy? I'm not whining, but I don't think it's fair. There is no logical reason to allow one activity and restrict the other. It's done out complete bias against and inconsideration for the preferred activities of other groups of people. If noise, speed etc. is the issue, then set rules regulating these things, don't ban the activity altogether.These trails should be open to all applicable activities, with a set of rules allowing everyone to enjoy the trails with each other.
Great trail for biking and just walking. So nicely maintained!
