The New Milford River Trail is a key link in The Western New England Greenway – an exciting effort to create a safe route for non-motorized transportation following the Route 7 Corridor from Long Island Sound to the Canadian Border.
Last summer Tom O'Brien, son Jake, and seven other Greenway supporters rode 300 miles from Burlington, VT to New Milford, CT, to build public support for the Greenway.
This year our small group of through-riders will gather in Norwalk, CT on Sunday, July 26, to ride north to Burlington, VT (arriving Saturday, Aug 1). Several will continue on to cross the border into Quebec.
The group's plans for Day 1 (Sunday, July 26) are as follows:
More information about The Western New England Greenway (including the route maps) can be found at http://wnegreenway.org.
Please share with anyone who supports our goal of making it safer and easier for people to walk and bike in this region.
The New Milford River Trail Association hopes to see you on July 26!
