Description The Airline State Park is a rail trail located in Connecticut. It follows a rail line that was known as the Air Line. It was conceived as a high speed passenger rail line from Boston to New York City, shaving 25 miles (40 km) off the old route. The Airline State Park Trail, located in eastern Connecticut, follows the old railbed of the New York & New England Air Line Railroad, so named because it followed a straight line route, as if drawn through the air, between New York and Boston. Stretching for more than 50 miles, it is divided into three sections: South , North and Thompson. The Airline Rail Trail provides a key link in the National Eastcoast Greenway System. The Airline Rails-To-Trails South spans 22 miles from the southern terminus in East Hampton to the Willimantic River and links the towns of East Hampton, Colchester, Hebron and Lebanon. Dramatic highlights include the Rapallo and Lyman Viaducts. There are also beautiful views from the new bridges over the Blackledge and Jeremy Rivers. This section of the trail also provides access to nearby Salmon River State Forest, Grayville Falls Park, Raymond Brook Marsh and Comstock Covered Bridge.
