Airline Trail

Though the rails are long gone, this rail bed once offered fashionable, rapid transit from New York to Boston.  Those who travel the corridor today witness the same inspiring panoramas and absorb the same solitude that has greeted travelers since the line was constructed. Stretching across eastern Connecticut from Thompson to East Hampton, this linear trail dates from the 1870s, and today draws walkers, hikers, horseback riders and bikers from across the state for the views, the relaxation and the solitude.

The Town of Chaplin has made some recent improvements in 2014 to the Airline Trial and will also be purchasing benches and signs using grant funds.
