The NRVT traverses urban and woodland settings both on- and off-road segments, which are in varying stages of completion. Starting at Calf Pasture Beach, the trail passes through SoNo and Norwalk Center.
Beginning at Calf Pasture Beach, the trail is on-road, bike lanes or shared roadway traveling north to the Maritime Aquarium.
From the Maritime Aquarium 1.5 miles of trail are complete – off-road, paved, 10’ wide. This trail section leads north, past Oyster Shell Park, (under I-95) to Stepping Stones Museum and Lockwood Mathews Mansion and on to Union Park (near the downtown library)
In 2018, with completion of additional trail segments, there will be 5 miles of continuous paved trail from Calf Pasture Beach to Broad Street. (1.5 miles on-road; 3.2 miles off road).
Free parking is available at the Mathews Park Trailhead or a Calf Pasture Beach (non-resident fee).
NRVT Signage marks all trail segments in Norwalk, and Informational signs with maps and trail facts will be posted at the Maritime Aquarium trail head this fall.
