Regional Trails and Tourist Information

Farmington River Trail – Located for the most part along an abandoned railroad right of way and with numerous views of the Farmington River, this trail loops off of the Farmington Canal Heritage Greenway from Farmington to Simsbury. When complete, it will offer a 16-mile path for walking, biking, and other activities.

Farmington Canal Heritage Greenway – Running the length of the state from New Haven to Suffield, this trail follows the path of the 19th century Farmington Canal. Converted to rail use until 1982, the corridor was saved for public use by a coalition of citizens and converted to a recreation path.

For more information and maps of the greenways in our area, please visit the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection Greenways web site.

Connecticut Forest and Park Association – is the oldest private nonprofit environmental organization in Connecticut. Visit their website to find out information about their trails or to order their Connecticut Walk Book.

Farmington Valley Visitors Association – is a non-profit public/private partnership, formed in 1994 to promote the Farmington Valley as a destination for tourists. Get pertinent information related to Farmington Valley tourism.
