Support NRVT

All year round, we need your help to keep building this trail.

The NRVT is a 501c3 non-profit organization. We are principally funded by private contributions. Your contribution, whatever its size,will help us achieve our long-term vision, and realize important milestones along the way.


Your donations have already funded:

  • The Wilton Loop from Rt. 7 to Skunk Lane.

  • The Trail Plan for the Redding Mile.

  • The Feasibility and Design plans for the WilWalk section: from Wolfpit Rd in Wilton to Grist Mill Rd in Norwalk.

  • Signage and kiosks for the NRVT in Norwalk, which has been principally built by the City of Norwalk.

  • The Trail Plan for the Ridgefield Ramble.


Help us extend the trail north and south sections.

Your tax-deductible gift to us comes back to you as more miles of NRVT to explore and enjoy!

Every $250 donation helps build one more foot of trail.

We've built 8 miles of multipurpose trail loved by all.

We still have 22 more to go!


As they say, time flies when you’re having fun! And we are having fun as the trail enters its second decade. In the last ten years we have grown in many ways.


Not only have we built 8 miles of well-loved trail and 6 more miles are underway, we have seen corresponding growth in our staffing and administrative needs.


It is a reflection of our success for sure, but one with fiscal implications for additional surveying, environmental studies, and increasing our executive director from part-time to full-time.

To keep building trail at this pace, we need to raise $100,000 with the 2021 Annual Appeal. Some loyal supporters have gotten us off to a strong start. Can we count on you to dig in and help meet this necessary goal?
