Free Rail Trail History Hike

Saturday, January 28, at 1:00 p.m. Second of our 23 hikes for 2023: a free railroad walk, starting on the north (right) side of the tracks, across from Farr's Sporting Goods, 2 Main Street, Manchester, CT 06042. Meet in the back of the parking lot of the strip mall at the intersection on Main and North Main Streets. Park at the southeast end of the strip mall or at the Eighth Utilities District office building, 18 Main Street (please do not park in Farr's parking lot). A special favor will be given to children who attend the hike. We will hike if light rain or snow -- bring an umbrella -- but extreme weather cancels. No dogs, please. About 3 miles round trip. Extreme weather cancels. No dogs, please. Click here to see information about the history of the Cheney Railroad on the Society's website. To enjoy the trail on your own, you can print a copy of this railroad map.
