Hop River State Park Trail


Hop River State Park Trail

Andover, Bolton, Columbia, Coventry, Manchester and Vernon

Hop River State Park TrailThis former railroad line is now a trail that winds 20.2 miles through the towns of Manchester, Vernon, Bolton, Coventry, Andover, and Columbia.  Like a pathway through time, this serpentine path passes among modern subdivisions and crosses roads, but mostly takes the trail user along a remote, quiet and long unused path through the eastern Connecticut countryside.
