Welcome to the new Air Line State Park Trail Region website. This initiative was funded by a CTDEEP grant to provide support to Air Line State Park Trail visitors. Our site highlights the Air Line State Park Trail Region and its member towns. Please visit often as we update with new information and events, trail tales and trail conditions.
A significant landscape absent of large-scale development, vast acreage of forests and streams, small villages, rural landscapes defines the Air Line State Park Trail Region. Traveling the Air Line State Park Trail experience coincides with a freshness of immersion into nature, celebration of unique small towns and small compact small urban centers.
Within the 408 square mile Air Line State Park Trail Region, this 64-mile-long multi-use corridor of the Air Line State Park Trail and the Portland Connector winds through hills and valleys of Connecticut’s rural scenic landscape. The existing trail and the proposed trail section from Portland to East Hampton traverse this eastern landscape from the Arrigoni Bridge on the Connecticut River near Middletown to the northeastern corner of Thompson, where the trail intersects with the Tri-State Marker at the corner borders of Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.
