The Litchfield Community Greenway

Many towns have converted unused railroad beds to updated greenways allowing the public to walk and ride their bikes through some of the most scenic areas of Connecticut.  Litchfield’s old railroad bed had attracted the attention of a group of citizens who have been working together for many years to make that dream of making a trail on the railroad bed into a reality. Phase one of the Litchfield Community Greenway is approximately a 2 mile trail that winds from Russell Street through wooded areas and along the Bantam River. It is a scenic and peaceful place in the midst of a lively town.

The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection officially designated the Litchfield Community Greenway was as an official state Greenway in 2011. To view the state greenways map from their site click here!
