Norwalk River Valley Trail

Five Towns | One Vision

The Norwalk River Valley Trail (NRVT) project aims to build 38 miles of multi-purpose trail connecting Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk, Connecticut, and Rogers Park in Danbury, passing through Wilton, Ridgefield, and Redding on the way.

In addition to creating recreational opportunities for walkers, hikers, cyclists, kids, pets and - on some stretches - equestrians, the NRVT will offer a green and healthy transportation alternative to reach rail stations, schools, offices, and businesses.

To find out about our existing sections of trail, our plans, and our vision, please visit our Trail Maps pages. 

New "Wilton Loop" Section Open to the Public


Our newest section of trail (Sharp Hill Road to near Twin Oak Lane in Wilton) IS OPEN.

We thank our supporters for their donations, time, effort, and simple encouragement. Thank you too to the Timber & Stone trail crew. You have built something useful and beautiful. 

Trail users, if you like it, please tell you friends. If you'd like more, please visit All donations, whatever their size, will help us move forward.

New Wilton Trail Section Still Under Construction


Although our newest length of trail looks ready in places, we must be patient. Construction work is still underway. Work and safety considerations mean the trail (north of Sharp Hill Road in Wilton) is NOT YET OPEN. Using the only partially compacted surface might even damage the trail.

We are on target to declare the section open by Labor Day. Remaining work includes culvert installation, compacting (rain needed, and it may be coming!), edging, and naturalization. It is going to be great when it's finished.
