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. 

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.

Ambitious Goals for 2016


The NRVT has high hopes for advancing our trail in 2016, particularly in Norwalk, Redding, and Wilton. You can read about them in the Wilton Bulletin and Good Morning Wilton.

If, like so many in our communities, you value the recreational and social opportunities of a trail, please contribute what you can --
