Description

Trail access is located at the trailheads on US 20 or Five Bridges Road. This trail follows the railroad grade of the unfinished Grand Trunk Railway (GT) which would have linked the Central Vermont Railroad to Providence RI had it been completed. From the western trailhead on US 20, the trail passes through an old tornado blowdown and parallels US 20 for the first 1/2 mile. After 1.7 miles, the trail crosses Five Bridges Road and a second access point. At 2.4 miles there is a spur loop trail with benches overlooking the Quinebaug River marsh. The trail ends at a proposed bridge site over the Quinebaug River.
