A new travel guide to a rocky road. You've heard of winery trails and biking trails andbirding trails. But how about an ice cream trail? Eastern Connecticut has created an official ice creamtrail to guide visitors to the best spots for locallyproduced and often homemade ice cream.

It is available online at http://www.mysticcountry.com/ from the Eastern Regional Tourism District of Connecticut.The list of ice cream shops and stands also offerstips on attractions and activities nearby.
