Hartford Riverwalk

peaceful walk

February, 2024 by karencoaletracey

I stopped on Wednesday on my way home to walk my dog. Very quiet during the week and a lovely walk if you like to listen to the water from the Connecticut river flowing by. You can see where the river has flooded, read the various historical statue plaques.

Bloomfield Greenway Multi-Use Trail

Extension to Tariffville is complete

November, 2023 by bcgp

A sidepath has been constructed adjacent to Route 189 to Main St in Tariffville. Trail is now about 3 miles long. It will be designated as part of the East Coast Greenway and is visible on Google Street View.

Farmington River Trail

Farmington River Trail

November, 2023 by thejake91739

After reading many of the mixed reviews for this trail on TrailLink, I decided to keep my ride short but sweet by restricting it to what seemed to be the most picturesque - the portion between the historic Unionville train depot and the Riverside Nursery and Garden Center in Collinsville.

This part of the trail contains breathtaking views of the officially deemed wild and scenic Farmington River. In addition, since I did this in mid October, the river was a perfect reflecting glass for the amazing fall colors.

My ride was only a total of twelve miles out and back, but I now have the most perfect photos, videos, and memories of this Connecticut treasure!

The bike ride is easy and mostly flat with lots of locals getting their steps in and exercising their dogs. Surprisingly, I only encountered two other bicyclists on my early weekday morning ride.

Air Line State Park Trail

Hard packed surface

October, 2023 by sbridges7272

We love biking the Airline and have used non electric hybrid bikes as well as e-bikes. Both work well. On 10/28/2023 we biked the section from Willimantic parking at the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum area and pedaled to Rt. 207 Lebanon Rd, Amston, CT. FYI, we're in our 60s and encountered no difficulties with the terrain.

CTfastrak Multi-Use Trail

Nice quiet ride to take time to enjoy these beautiful days.

CTfastrak Multi-Use Trail

Good for transportation and exercise, not all that scenic

August, 2023 by sjwang40

I think folks have to temper their expectations. This isn't the Farmington Canal Trail and isn't trying to be. This is a nice, well paved track for exercise and actual transportation. It provides a bike link from Newington and the southern end of West Hartford to downtown New Britain that previously didn't exist. For that I'm super happy. West Hartford has a decent bike network that connects into Hartford, so now there is a semi-cohesive bike network that spans from downtown Hartford all the way to New Britain with stops in between. New Britain is booming (by New Britain standards) so there's actually a lot to visit at the end of the trail, like the art museum, breweries, restaurants, etc. I wish the Multi-Use Trail extended all the way to the Elmwood or even Hartford stops, but it's useful the way it is now. It's not all that scenic but there's still a decent amount of greenery and it's pleasant to ride. It's next to the busway and train tracks, but the train is relatively far away, and the buses are not noisy or especially polluting (they are hybrids).

Windsor Locks Canal State Park Trail

Not for road bikes

August, 2023 by tdufore

This has the potential to be a special path with unobstructed views of the Connecticut river and distanced from development by the canal. Truly a touch of wilderness. Excellent access. Will be a favorite when it is repaved. Now it is just too bumpy. Maybe in the near future? Then it will be five stars. In the meantime, if you have the right bike or like to walk, this trail is magical.

Air Line State Park Trail

Air line trail Pomfret to Willimantic.

June, 2023 by rejohnson117

Have been on this stretch of the Air Line trail numerous times over the past few months as I have had the good fortune to make it part of my daily work commute. Overall it has been fantastic and in good shape. There is a one mile stretch from Goodwin State Forest (Potter Road) to Roger's Road (on the Chaplin Line) that needs some work. It's a bit rocky and is a single lane for a bit, but it is passable - just be careful. Whatever direction you are headed you will be rewarded with some beautiful scenery and easier riding once you past this stretch. I love this part of the trail; the pond near Station Road (Hampton) and some of the overlooks in Chaplin are my favorites. Enjoy the ride.
