Length: Redstone Rail Trail; 1.6 miles
Difficulty: Easy. Flat paved rail trail.
From CT take exit 48 to Route 220 northeast into MA and look left for Denslow Rd. In MA; from the intersection of Routes 83, 186 & 220 in the center of East Longmeadow follow Route 220 (Shaker Rd) south. Turn right on Industrial Rd (Industrial park sign) after 1.2 miles for the Industrial Rd parking lot or continue south and turn right on Denslow Rd after 1.6 miles for the Denslow Road parking lot.
The Redstone Rail Trail follows the abandoned rail bed of the Boston & Maine RR. The old East Longmeadow Train Station still stands near Maple St. This station was used for moving rock from the nearby Red Stone Quarry, hence the name "Redstone Rail Trail".
Starting from the Denslow Road parking lot; Head north along the paved trail as it travels through an industrial corridor. You come to the Industrial Drive parking lot at 0.4 miles, along with a sign board, before crossing same road. Cross over Chestnut St and you'll pass by a spur trail to Family Bike just shy of a mile. See; FAMILY BIKE . You then pass by the old East Longmeadow Train Station and come to Maple St at 1.6 miles where the trail currently ends. Currently no parking lot located here, only a sign board.
