Love walking, and bike riding, on the Farmington River Trail. I am out there 2, or 3, times per week. The trail is varied, interesting and well maintained. I generally ride in the towns of Collinsville, Burlington, Unionville, Farmington and Avon. I am never bored, with so many choices and easy parking. I have ridden the trail every month of... 更多
We absolutely love the rail trail system that has taken off in so many states. This trail is especially lovely as it connects to the longer Farmington Canal Heritage trail as well. The River Trail is shorter and I think more scenic. It is mostly paved and off road except for a few sections that have you on the roads... 更多
I was in this area for a girls weekend and this was a perfect way to be outside and get some exercise. The path is well marked and paved. I think the better way to really experience it would be by bicycle. There are a few places along the way that actually let you borrow a bike for free! We... 更多
This is an excellent bike trail; totally paved, no cars, can ride from Plainville CT to Southwick Mass and beyond. You can actually start in New Haven but there is still a portion that goes on city roads in Southington. Marked, flashing lights at the street crossings. Beautiful varied scenery, especially nice in the Fall and Spring. Some areas near... 更多
It is a great trail in the woods and thanks to lots of shade it is a very pleasant place even on a hot summer day. It seems like a perfect place for a walk or bike ride. Last Sunday I went on about 22 mile afternoon bike ride with my husband which we really enjoyed. We started at the... 更多
The Farmington River Trail is a great trail for walking, running, biking, roller-blading, walking a baby in a carriage, etc. I have been on this trail probably fifty times in the last year or two. This trail is 25 miles long. I usually get on the trail in the Collinsville/Burlington area on Route 179. In this area, the trail is... 更多
I only walked a portion of the trail as it goes along the Farmington river in Burlington, Ct. I found it mostly flat, obstruction-free, and heavily populated with walkers, joggers, bikes, and skaters. Many people walking dogs. Pretty scenery along the river--some road noise as well. Easy access. Multiple benches set up along the way as well.
The Farmington River Trail is truly a gem in Connecticut. The River Trail winds along the historic and beautiful Farmington River through Canton, Collinsville, Burlington and onward to Farmington, Avon and Simsbury. Great for a 30 minute walk or bike ride. Or you can spend hours on the trail and nearby villages such as Collinsville.
Great place to walk a dog, ride a bike and enjoy the outdoors! Can ride from town to town and even pop in for lunch somewhere...
