The trail begins in Ashley Falls with 8/10s of a mile of dirt road that is passable, but just barely, on a road bike. The pavement begins in Connecticut. Weatogue Road along the west side of the River is flat and very lightly traveled. For part of the way, the road is just a few yards from the River. In other sections, you look across fields to the River and the heavily wooded eastern bank. Roughly 1.8 miles after you cross the border into Connecticut, you can just make out the remains of a small hydroelectric dam destroyed in the 1938 hurricane.
Weatogue Road ends at Twin Lakes Road and you follow Twin Lakes Road roughly three-fourths of a mile to its intersection with Rt. 44.
