Airline Trail History: The airline trail takes its name from the imaginary line drawn from New York to Boston, through the “air” so to speak, to illustrate the shortest possible route between these two cities. It’s an abandoned railroad line, passing through forests, rock-cuts, meadows and borders wetlands and marsh areas. Several rivers and streams are crossed with two viaducts that provide wonderful views of the area.
