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. 

Best Feet Forward Across The Boardwalk


As the Wilton Bulletin writes, Wilton Woman's Club raised $30,000 for the NRVT at its April 1st "Best Foot Forward" FUNdraiser, funds that "will ensure the trail meets its immediate financial goal to build a 200-foot boardwalk that will take the newest section of trail to Twin Oaks Lane".

Right now, that boardwalk is just a line of "helical anchors". It will possible later this year to cross the wetland to the Twin Oak Lane trailhead. Thank you, Wilton women! 


Best Foot Forward!


We are delighted and very grateful that Wilton Woman's Club has chosen the NRVT as the beneficiary for their 50th Anniversary Fashion Show and FUNdraiser on April 1st. 

Please have some fun, and support your trail at the same time, by registering for this special event:



Fairfield County's Giving Day is approaching


Thursday, March 10th, 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 10th, please visit our page at to give whatever you can. We will use it to take the NRVT forward.
