Great trail with greens and manageable hills. But some dangerous crossings and noise highways. Recommend ear buds. I wouldn’t take my kids for whole trail. Just south is fine. Will definitely go during foliage season.
Rode from the trail parking lot in Andover to Lafayette. IPhone said 8 miles each way. My husband rode a commuter bike which did fine on this stretch. We saw two bow hunters from the trail - we had not realized that deer season had just started - and were happy we had worn vivid colored shirts, albeit to be visible to cars. We stopped for brunch at the Millside cafe in Lafayette, which is visible from the trail. I recommend it as a tasty destination!
We rode this trail on 9/12/20, starting at the parking lot on route 63.
Overall, a nice trail, but it has a lot of plusses but also some things that could be considered “minuses” by some.
Shaded, pretty sections high over the adjoining forest.
Some nice scenery including horse farms (and horses share the trail, we passed several), plus several ponds. Route goes through the woods the whole way…very little in the way of passes through suburbia.
Not a huge number of road crossings, and typically with good sight lines.
No big hills, some gradual ups and downs.
Most of the train is hard packed dirt or stone dust that makes for a good surface. However, there are significant sections that are a bit rougher. Some of the road crossings involve a downhill, cross the road, and then an uphill…often with a lot of stone or sand involved. There is a section around mile 8-9(when going West) where the trail follows something like a creek bed, with large stones that make it problematic (we walked this section). There are some embedded stones along the way so you have to watch where you’re going and steer around them..or even walk briefly. Some sections do have some drainage issues, so just need to be careful there. And parts of the trail become more like singletrack. We were able to navigate the entire route with our mountain/trail bikes (30 or 32 cc tires)…I would not recommend a conventional skinny tire road bike here.
Please don’t think the minuses outnumber the plusses here. Overall I recommend this trail because it’s pretty and ridable. Maps are available at the Connecticut DEP website.
Finally I recommend starting at the Naugatuck route 63 parking area…several other posters have noted that there’s basically no parking if you start in Southbury.
Check out the Air Line trail and the Hop River trail, not too far away in central Connecticut, for other options you may want to try.
There is nothing interesting to explore here IMO. Btw there is no shade so it’s extremely hot in summers.
This is a nice ride as it takes you thru some wooded areas then you drive along Richmond Ave for a good part. You can continue along a very narrow path on Arthur Kill Rd to get into Bloomfield park and continue your ride in there as well.
My review is more conservative. This bike trail is mostly in the woods where you don’t get sunburn. There is also a an asphalt /gravel path for your choice. It’s worth a normal weekend visit but not a special tour to it
Awesome, peaceful, beautiful surroundings. Loved the break of trails they town on road then back in the woods. Tree farms.
Took the family and it was very clean and an excellent time. Windy and lots of hills and downhill runs. Recommended
This was a lovely, but popular walk. The only issue is that all but one small car park has been closed to non-local residents due to COVID. So unless you have a parking permit, you’ll need to head to Palace Street where there are a small number of metered parking spaces.
Fairly new to the trail scene and this was the perfect place to start! Wide trail, friendly people and beautiful environment! Did five miles today.
done this trail couple times. i loved the fact their was a place to grab a bite to eat along the ride. overall for nature lovers this is a gem of a trail. Highly recommended for biking/running
