The Wilton Loop is actually a loop!
East Side of Wilton Loop
The east side illustrates the NRVT’s vision for the trail – a ten-foot wide, multi-use, ADA complaint, compacted stone dust trail — it winds gently through the wooded landscape.
Infra-red counters (Courtesy of the CT Trail Census) captured over 4,000 people per month using the trail. Trail heads and parking are found at Wolfpit Rd. and Rt. 7, Sharp Hill Road and Autumn Ridge drive, and at the end of Twin Oak Lane. The trail extends approximately two miles from Wolfpit Road and Rt. 7 to Twin Oak Lane.
The 2,000 feet from Twin Oak to Skunk Lane – the next section – is estimated to cost $200,000. The funds have been raised from generous Wilton citizens and construction will be completed in the fall of 2017.
West Side of Wilton Loop
While the west side is usable, the addition of improved crosswalks and signage in 2017 will help hikers and bikers. This part of the loop runs from Wolfpit Rd and Rt. 7 to Horseshoe Park, through the Center along River Road, passing through Merwin’s Meadow, the school complex, and then hitting the north end of the loop in Allen’s Meadows at Olmstead Hill Road.
