The Longest Trail in Fairfield County
The NRVT is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organized in 2011. Its fourteen member Board of Directors includes representatives from the five towns through which the NRVT runs: Norwalk, Wilton, Ridgefield, Redding, and Danbury. It is an all-volunteer organization, with the exception of a part-time Executive Director. The NRVT meets monthly and meetings are open to the public.
The NRVT mission is to build and maintain a 30 mile, ten-foot wide multi-use trail from Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk, passing through Wilton, Ridgefield and Redding terminating at Rogers Park in Danbury.
These guidelines will help provide for the safe and enjoyable use of the trail without endangering others.
Be mindful and apply the CDC guidelines for COVID-19 and overall social distancing – 6 feet apart.
Always wear appropriate safety gear. Trail users are responsible for their own safety. Cyclists should always wear approved helmets and other protective equipment that could save your life. Keep your bicycle in good operating condition.
Run, walk, and bike on the right of the trail and pass slowly on the left, calling out or ringing a bell announcing that you are approaching and passing. Please do not stop in the trail or ride, or walk, in such a way as to use the whole trail width.
Please keep the trail as naturally clean as possible. Take your own trash home. Please help the NRVT volunteers who must clean up the trails.
Clean up after pets. Nobody likes animal litter on or near the trails. Please keep dogs closely leashed to avoid entanglement.
Motorized vehicles (except for wheelchairs) and horses are prohibited from the trails.
The trail is open year round sunrise to sunset except where posted.
