Vernon Trail—Rockville Spur

Vernon Trail—Rockville Spur Professional Review and Guide

"Starting high on a ridge and then descending into a steep ravine, this trail has a sense of being far away from the real world, yet it is only minutes from the suburban town of Vernon.

The Rockville Spur is 4.1 miles long. At 0.5 mile you’ll reach a foot-bridge over the Tankerhoosen River. The trail continues through light forest for another 3.6 miles, ending just shy of downtown Rockville. If you have a chance, visit the Rockville Historic District, just a short distance from the end of the trail. The area was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. The downtown area’s buildings offer myriad architectural styles from the Victorian era."

"Starting high on a ridge and then descending into a steep ravine, this trail has a sense of being far away from the real world, yet it is only minutes from the suburban town of Vernon. Surface: Packed dirt. Location: Tolland County.

This pleasant rail-trail offers a relatively easy trip through light forest on top of a ridge. It’s a perfect trail for families with young children, or for anyone out for a pleasant walk in the woods. As you begin the trail at the parking lot, go slowly because there is a road crossing almost immediately after the trail begins. Once on the other side of the road, the trail immediately begins its traverse along the top of a ridge. A pleasant residential community can be viewed on the right, with backyards in view from the trail. The ridge continues for an additional half-mile. At 0.9 mile, the path crosses a small bridge."
