The Railroad Ramble occupies a corridor abandoned by the Central New England Railroad, which provided service from 1871 through 1967. In Lakeville, the trail can be found just off of Route 41 behind the recreational complex. You'll have to climb up an embankment to get to the trail, however.
The trail's south end is dirt and grass, and can be overgrown with vegetation in summer. Between Walton Street and the Walton Street Extension, the road and the trail are one and the same for a couple of blocks before the trail becomes dirt and grass to its end at Library Street in Salisbury.
The passes through a variety of landscapes, including woodlands, open fields, wetlands and neighborhoods. Along the way you'll find numbered observation locations, which correspond to a guide describing the significance of each location. Get a copy of the guide from businesses in both Lakeville and Salisbury.
The Railroad Ramble parallels US Route 44 in Lakeville and Salibury, CT. Trail users can access the trail from the ballfield at Route 41 and Main Street across from the fire station or Walton Street in Lakeville, Salmon Kill Road in Salisbury or via Libray Street and Railroad Street in Salisbury.
There is limited trail user parking in Lakeville and in Salisbury.
