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,...More

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...More

A beautiful walk, jog or bike. Nice paved path follows the river bed. Nature at it's finest! Trail is 34 miles long and you can take any section of it you want.

The Farmington River Trail is a great place to walk dogs, ride bikes, or just walk. It has beautiful views of the river the whole way.

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...More
