Largely forested and full of breathtaking views, the Pequonnock River Trail is a greenway that runs more than 4 miles through the popular park and beyond to the Newtown border. Designated as part of the inaugural group of state-designated greenways in 2001, the Pequonnock (Housatonic) Railbed Greenway is a great place to enjoy verdant, lush, and colorful miles of hiking trails in a deep valley along a scenic river while hiking, biking, or simply walking your dog.

The Pequonnock River Trail is a great place to relax both your mind and body. The trail is pretty easy to handle, so you can simply have a good time without extensive load. Looking for some hidden gems or random paths? You can find several ones you can jump onto and explore how great this area is.

The trail is well maintained for our visitor’s convenience. You can enjoy parks & water, including Centennial Watershed State Forest, Gardner Road Reserve, and Lanes Mines Park, and multiple historic points along the trail.

The greenway extends from Bridgeport through Trumbull and Monroe and into Newtown. We welcome every visitor and hope you have a great time and enjoy the beauty of the Pequonnock River Trail. To learn more about upcoming events and join one, follow the news on the website.
