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.
Some sections of the NRVT are already open and in daily use. In Norwalk, you can walk or ride from Union Park to the Maritime Aquarium, and from New Canaan Avenue to Broad Street. In Wilton, there is NRVT from Center Street, through Merwin Meadows and Lovers Lane Open Space to School Road.
The Wilton Loop
We are about to open 0.5 miles of "demo trail" in Wilton, going from Route 7 at Wolfpit Road to Raymond Lane. The demo trail will also be part of the east side of the "Wilton Loop". With your help, we anticipate quickly extending the demo trail through the woods all the way to Pimpewaug Road.
The NRVT has set its sights on
progressing some key sections of trail:
The "Missing Link" between Union Park and New Canaan Avenue in Norwalk.
Deering Pond, Norwalk, to the Wilton line, and then on to meet the demo trail (this section might eventually intersect with the proposed Merritt Parkway Trail).
The west side of the Wilton Loop, using existing sidewalk and trails, and roadway converted to shared use, between Wolfpit Road and the High School.
Then on to Danbury!
