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, and pets, the NRVT will offer
a green and healthy transportation alternative to reach rail
stations, schools, offices, and businesses.

plans, and our vision, please visit our Trail Maps

The Norwalk River Valley Trail was one of 15 trails that
participated in the CT Trail Census this spring. The data gathered
in this research helps the Norwalk River Valley Trail and its
supporters understand how often the trail is being used, by whom
and for what purposes. This information will help in planning the
further expansion of the trail. Read more in The Hour.
