Section of the trail at Bull Hill Road is closed as well as the parking lot at this location. No information regarding why this section is closed or for how long. Would be nice if a brief sign could be posted to let users know if work is being done and how long the closure is projected to be. A lot of disappointed people driving and biking here; only to be turned around.
We rode our bikes all the to Southwick, Massachusetts.... what a beautiful ride. Paved trails and amazing scenery. Just asking for consideration if you are going to stop, pull of the paved trail. People tend to stop in the middle not giving consideration to the bikers, joggers and people walking
Trail was awesome! Well maintained and nice views! Mainly flat except for hills at the road crossings. My family and I will definitely ride it again!
The trail is perfect for bikes and has benches to rest
Ok but crowded
Just to keep trail riders informed, there is trail construction work ongoing from the Route 169 crossing in Pomfret to the Qinnebaug River in Putnam. Give it two seasons of construction and this 3 miles section should be done. IT includes 5 road crossings or bridges. That will be the last of the hard work on the Airline Trail.
Still needed is finishing the surface from Station Road in Hampton to South Brook Road at the Chaplin Townline (3.5 miles) and the 1/4 mile section from under Route 66 to the completed section of the Portland portion of the Airline Trail. Lastly, Portland has plans to begin design of the trail section from Camp Ingersol to Route 66.
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.
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.
Ridden this from Kensico Dam south. Great trail. Tight winds and turns, so some slow moving. Beautiful area. Not too congested.
I have ridden this a few times. Very nice trail. Well maintained. Beautiful area.
