Behind Plainville Town Hall is a recreational park that offers a pool, fields, courts, and a playground. Beyond the playground is a concrete bridge that crosses the Ten Mile River and leads you to a network of trails. The trails, mostly an old rail bed and dirt roads, wind through the swampy areas near the headwaters of the Ten Mile River. The trails can be a bit muddy at times and even flooded when the river rises. There are several locations where the river crosses the trails. Most of theses crossings have bridges. Keep in mind that these trails are also used quite heavily by dirt bike riders. There is a marked loop to follow that will lead you up to Fuller Street.
