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.

Volunteers needed on National Public Lands Day, Saturday September 27th

Volunteers are needed to start work on the northern Ridgefield section of the Norwalk River Valley Trail! The section will run from Laurel Lane (off Route 7, south of the Ridgefield Ice Cream Shop) to the Martin Park parking lot, utilizing town open space and connecting to an existing trail from the Regency to the parking lot. The trail will eventually join planned NRVT sections in Redding to the east and Danbury to the north. 

Volunteers will work under the supervision of Greg Waters, a member of the NRVT Steering Committee. The project is a cooperative effort with the Ridgefield Conservation Commission. Come and join us!

Trail Construction between Raymond Lane and Sharp Hill Road

"Once again, trail is being laid down through the Wilton woods."

"Last winter the half-mile Norwalk River Valley Trail 'demo' section was built between Route 7 and Raymond Lane. Now it is being extended up to Sharp Hill Road. And, without winter freeze-thaw, things are moving along briskly." Read on at The Daily Voice.

MAP - The location of the trail under construction (between Raymond Lane and Sharp Hill road crossings) and the completed "demo" trail (Rte 7 Commuter Lot to Raymond Lane).
