Description

The trail starts from an interesting landmark: a Redstone missile brought to Warren by a resident who served in the Army in Alabama in 1970. He found some obsolete missiles in a field and arranged with the Army to transport one back to Warren, aiming to bring something of America's thriving (and far-removed) space program closer to local youth. 

The rail trail is a pleasant and picturesque 5-mile multipurpose route. The hard-packed dirt surface is generally wide, smooth and flat, and motorized use is permitted, making it popular among ATV riders in summer and snowmobilers in winter. The trail also welcomes walkers, bikers, equestrians. and anglers. 

The trail passes along Black Brook, providing the short trail with beautiful scenery.
