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. 

Fairfield County's Giving Day is approaching

02/27/2017

Thursday, March 9th, is Fairfield County's Giving Day, an event that unites our community around local causes close to your heart.

What better gift to our families, friends, and the generations to come than a local trail to walk, run, and ride?

Visit an existing section of NRVT on any fine day - or not so fine! - and you will see people exercising, de-stressing, playing, getting together.

We need your help to improve the NRVT - lengthen it, join it up, take it to more towns, make it even better for your walks, runs, and rides.

On March 9th, please visit  our page at FCGives.org to give whatever you can. We will use it to take the NRVT forward.

Twin Oak Lane Boardwalk and Trail - Update

12/16/2016

We are pleased to report progress on construction of the new boardwalk and new trail section on the east-side "Wilton Loop". The work will connect existing sections of the loop to Twin Oak Lane.

Trail builder Timber & Stone LLC has made the following progress to date: 

  • Framing of the 200-foot boardwalk is complete.

  • Excavation, sub-surfacing, and surfacing of the new trail to connect the boardwalk with Twin Oak Lane is complete. 

The boardwalk still requires a deck and railings. Completion is dependent on obtaining black locust lumber of sufficient quantity and quality, and also on favorable weather. If both lumber mills and Mother Nature cooperate, Timber & Stone hopes to complete the boardwalk by mid-January. The onset of heavy snow could delay completion to the spring.

The new boardwalk and trail was made possible by generous donations from the community, and in particular from Wilton Woman's Club. We are grateful.
