Welcome to NRVT


The Norwalk River Valley Trail project aims to build 30 miles of trail connecting Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk, Connecticut to Rogers Park in Danbury, passing through Wilton, Ridgefield, and Redding along the way.

The NRVT is be a 10 foot wide, handicap-accessible trail creating recreation opportunities for walkers, hikers, cyclists, kids and pets.  The NRVT offers a healthy transportation alternative rail stations, schools, offices, and businesses.

Thank you to our friends at Eversource!

We recently received a generous donation towards our WilWalk trail section. We look forward to sharing the construction progress with our trail lovers starting in the first half of 2021! Stay tuned!!

On September 11, our friends at Athletic Brewing made a generous donation to NRVT trail expansion. And their crew spent the morning blazing a new section of the Norwalk River Valley Trail, fighting branches, brambles, and stumps along the way.

This new trail will connect the Norwalk and Wilton sections of the NRVT, and eventually link the 30 mile trail across Fairfield County.

Thank you Athletic Brewing’s TWO FOR THE TRAIL program!

COVID-19: Time for Caution…

In times like this, the Norwalk River Valley Trail can offer a critical outlet for those looking to exercise and experience the healing power of nature. We have seen a significant uptick in trail usage and understand that the trail offers a brief reprieve from the issues that surround us.

If you choose to go for a walk, run, or bike, please remember that the CDC’s guidelines for social distancing apply on the trail too! Be sure to allow for 6 feet of distance between yourself and others on the trail at all times.
