Airline Trail State Park Professional Reviews and Guides

"Panoramic views of the surrounding Connecticut hills and valleys characterize the Airline State Park Trail. Its most dramatic features are its two hidden viaducts, which offer expansive views of the scenery below.

The Airline State Park Trail has several nice features. It takes the traveler past rolling hills and valleys before opening up to expansive views atop the trail’s two viaducts left over from railroading days. The Airline State Park Trail receives its name from the railroad that sped passengers between New York and Boston."

As a runner I am looking for smooth wide trails for summer running. This trail has a good incline starting from the bridge with some rocky terrain. You then reach some very panoramic ledges overlooking a river. The trail is hilly and challenging for a runner who is starting out, but a very scenic fun and worthwhile trail area. If you are looking for some hillwork and trail run to protect your joints and need refuge from the sun, this is absolutely ideal.

I live near this trail and frequently bike and run on it. It's a beautiful area along the Salmon River. The trail is fairly flat which makes it ideal for people of all ability levels.
