Salmon River Airline Trail (map)
231 River Rd
Colchester, CT, USA 06415

River Road follows the bank of the Salmon River from where Jeremy Brook joins Blackledge River to create the Salmon River. Our drive will follow this road to the Comstock Bridge, one of only a few covered bridges in CT. There, after we view the Bridge, we will turn around and return along the same road back to our parking lot.

Route 2 to Exit 16 (route 149)
Right onto 149 to River Road (from either direction on Rt 2)
Follow River Road (winding & hilly) to junction of South Rd and River Rd.
Note State Park Sign and CVDC Sign
Continue Left on River Road to parking lot on right.

From Route 16: can be tricky because if coming from East Hampton you will actually pass the Comstock Bridge. DO NOT turn in there. Proceed to the intersection of 16 and 149; turn left onto rt 149. River Rd will be on your left. (If you are traveling north on 149 cross over 16, continue on 149 until you reach River Rd on your left.) Google maps does a good job of showing this. If in doubt, call or email Marguerite.
