New Haven County CT Biking Trails

Branford Trolley Trail
Pine Orchard to Stony Creek
1 Mile
The Branford Trolley Trail is a 480 foot long by 4-foot wide footbridge along the path of an abandoned historic trolley track. The bridge connects to a popular existing nature walk. Visitors to the Branford trolley track footbridge can expect to see numerous shorebirds in the tidal estuary, feeding in the marsh or wading in the shallow waters of the tidal creek. This marsh area also provides a habitat for many fish, mammals, and invertebrates. Description from the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection.

Derby Greenway
Division Street to Main Street
1.7 miles
The trail, which is approximately 1.7 miles in length runs atop the flood control walls on the Naugatuck and Housatonic Rivers and is tied together by the portion of the trail running on O’Sullivan’s Island. The trail was funded with federal transportation funding coupled with a local match. The trail links Derby to Ansonia and Shelton and also links the six major bridges in Derby. One of the centerpieces of the trail is the spectacular new pedestrian footbridge on the Housatonic side which provides panoramic views of the Housatonic River.

Farmington Canal Heritage Trail
New Haven to MA/CT Border
40 miles
Running north from the Yale University campus in New Haven through the heart of Connecticut, the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail comprises several distinct segments totaling 40 miles of rail-trail. When completed, this multi-use trail will stretch, uninterrupted, more than 60 miles from New Haven to the Massachusetts border. A 7-mile segment under development in Southwick, Massachusetts, will eventually link to a network of trails still farther north in Northampton, creating a key interstate route. The trail follows the corridor of the defunct Farmington Canal, New England’s onetime longest canal.

Larkin State Park Trail
Kettletown Road in Southbury to Whittemore Glen State Park
10.4 miles
Typical of rail-trails in southwest Connecticut, the route plies a gentle grade across rolling topography, occasionally slicing through rock outcrops or overlooking low-lying areas. The trail’s crushed stone surface is typically firm, especially in the eastern and middle portions. Surface conditions are rougher along the western section, which is rockier and somewhat eroded, making it more suitable for mountain bikes. Near the trail midpoint at Long Meadow Road, you’ll briefly leave the state-owned property for a half-mile, on-road detour along a privately held stretch. Turn left on Long Meadow Road and right on Towantic Hill Road, then watch for trail access on the left side of the road.

Middlebury Greenway
Route 64/63 Junction in Middlebury to Quassy Amusement Park in Middlebury
4.4 miles
This delightful asphalt path winds 4.4 miles through the residential community of Middlebury, connecting businesses, parks, and homes. The popular trail offers residents an off-road option for running errands and welcomes car-weary travelers on nearby Interstate 84 who wish to stretch their legs in a convenient and comfortable setting. While State Route 64 parallels the greenway for its entire length, the road won’t lessen your enjoyment.
