Housatonic Rail Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This trail has two sections—both laden with forest and lakes—and is popular with Connecticut residents and rail trail enthusiasts alike.

Going south on Route 25 from Newtown Center, take a left on Botsford Hill Road and a right on Swamp Road. There will be a yellow gate to the right of the working freight railroad tracks.

In the woods you will see the old double track of rails that will become single rail. After a small dirt speed bump, you will be on the public portion. The trail is 6 feet wide and surfaced with stone dust, and there are flood catch basins on both sides. The trail curves and there is a sudden downhill that is very sandy, so please use caution."
