Difficulty: Hebron Ave Bike Path; Easy. Flat paved trail.
Smith School Greenway; Easy. Paved rolling trail.
To Start from the Bell Street parking lot; From Route 2 take exit 8 to Route 94 east past the Hebron Ave School and turn left along Bell St. The parking lot just a ways up on your left. To Start from Buckingham Park; Continue along Route 94 and turn left on Route 83, then left into Buckingham Park.
The Glastonbury Trail is a planned series of interconnecting trails traveling from Buckingham Park west to Riverfront Park next to the Connecticut River, then south to Ferry Landing Park. Currently 3 sections of the trail have been completed; the Hebron Ave Bike Path, the Smith School Greenway & the Riverfront Park Trail. For more information visit; GLASTONBURY TRAILS .
Starting from Buckingham Park; A stone-dust trail travels around the ball fields and out to Route 94 and the Hebron Ave Bike Path. Turn right along the path which begins just shy of Route 83. This paved path follows alongside Hebron Ave to Harvest Lane where the trail ends. To continue you must travel on-road along busy Hebron Ave which has a very narrow shoulder. Not recommended for kids on bikes or inexperienced riders. After 1.6 miles you'll come to Bell St where you turn right. Follow Bell St until you cross over Salmon Creek. Turn left into the Bell Street parking lot for the Smith School Greenway trailhead at 2 miles. The paved Smith School Greenway travels through the open woods of the Bell-Hebron Linear Park. A narrow stone-dust trail parallels it. The trail winds through the forest, crosses a stream and encounters some small hills before emerging at several sports fields at 3 miles.
Note; Just past the baseball field on your right is another paved path that leads to Worthington Rd after 0.2 miles.
A paved path leads you past a baseball and soccer field alongside an access road. Next you'll pass by the Smith Middle School and out to Addison Rd where the trail ends at 3.4 miles. The next sections are on-road.
Note; I have not yet checked out the Riverfront Park Trail.
