At the turn of the 20th century, Groton & Stonington Railway Company began to move passengers between Groton to Mystic via electric trolleys. But in 25 years, the line had been discontinued due to increased competition from the automobile. Today, the G & S Trolley Trail sits in that former right-of-way, linking Groton to Haley Farm State Park. The hard surface bike and pedestrian pathway starts with runs from Knoxville Court through Ring Drive Park into the State Park, where unmarked trails peel off from it into the woods. As it exits the park, the trail crosses over Amtrak tracks via a bridge and then ends in Neptune Drive, back in a residential area.
To access the start the north end of the trail, from US 1 heading east, make a right turn onto Depot Road, then a left onto Fitch Avenue / Midway Oval. Pass Central Avenue, and then turn right onto Knoxville Court, at the end of which is the trail and a cul-de-sac where you can park. You can also park at Haley Farm State Park (24 Haley Farm Ln, Groton, CT)
