FVTC National Trails Day Ride

Date: 6/3/2017
Time: 9:00:00 AM

Saturday, June 3rd

In conjunction with National Trails Day, the Farmington Valley Trails Council will hold a bicycle ride on Saturday, June 3rd. This event helps to promote public awareness of the rails-to-trails initiative in the Farmington Valley, attracting new and existing fans of the multi-use trail system. The northern part of the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail now has 28 continuously paved miles from southern Farmington through Westfield, MA. The Farmington River Trail is complete from southern Farmington to Route 44 in Canton and has 10.2 miles of paved trail.  We are now also celebrating the newly paved section from Farmington to RT 6. 

This family-oriented event is designed for trail users of all abilities, and is fully supported until 2:00 pm. It starts on Iron Horse Blvd at Jim Gallagher Way.

Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your start time to register and get ready. All tours utilize the trail system and allow participants to enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery in the Farmington Valley.   Light snacks (energy bars and drinks) will be provided at the start. There are several rest stops along the way.  

The Trails Council is proud to show off the finest trail system in New England and let both veteran users and brand new participants know how much we love it.
