  • We parked at the intersection of routes 169 & 44 in Pomfret (Pomfret Station) and biked 30 miles in total (15 out and 15 back) into Hampton/Windham. It was a beautiful ride on a gorgeous day. I expect...  more »
  • Actually, the trail is about 50 miles long, but we found the best way to walk it was with two cars. Parked one at Pomfret Station, leaving one car there, and drove to the Hampton Reservoir parking lot...  more »
  • Last Fall, we did 10 mile bicycle ride through the trail, it was nice but the trail is partially muddy/wet at some spots, the bogs and brooks were very nice with plenty of birds habitat.It is not the ...  more »

  • Love this walk. Quite a few pretty sites to see along the length of the trail. Great for walking or biking (or cross country skiing in the winter). Be ready for some long, slow climbing hills along most of the path.
  • If you are in the area it's not a bad place to go for a hike it goes on for quite a while I believe it goes through a couple times if you were to go all the way I know about at the beginning of the trail on the East Hampton side there are some benches so depending on which way you're coming I'll be either at the beginning or at the end so if you walk from the other and you would probably definitely want them to sit down and or if you don't want to go for a long walk it's a good spot to sit relax and able to turn around it is not too far in but not too close to the entrance if you're up for it it said it was on a lot further than that I'm not sure if they put more benches down further or not because I don't need to go past that point is also some kind of Lake or a bog or something like that I would not recommend trying to go swimming or fishing in it the only reason why I mentioned it depending on the time of year just be careful because sometimes there is a lot of bugs for that reason.
  • Great place to hike lots to see on and just off the trail. Try-state marker is cool to be in three states at same time. Mostly easy hiking on old rail trail.
  • Great trails for hiking.
  • Took this trail from East Hampton for about twelve miles and then returned. Lovely trail with many brooks and streams on either side of the tightly packed gravel trail. Where it passes through valleys, the trail is built up high (since trains could not climb hills very easily) and the views are spectacular. The grade, although almost flat, does go down very gradually as you go northeast. Something to keep in mind. I didn't notice it until I had to return the same twelve miles with it being up grade almost the whole way. Midweek, it's almost deserted and a must for anyone looking for a pleasant ride through forest, rock outcrops and scenic views.
