Today having business in Southington (actually Plantsville), I decide to ride the Farmington Rail Trail -- officially known as the "Farmington Canal Heritage Trail. " I parked at Dean's Stove and Spa (I had a pellet class at 5pm) and first rode north to where it ends.

And even a short section with the tracks still preserved!

There were even a couple of documented railroad crossings!
This old lock even still worked by hand! (I opened and closed the lock gates)
I turned around at Brooksvale Road - I needed to be back at Dean's by 5pm
