Regional Trails

The original Regional Recreational Trails Mapping Project, which was completed in the early 2000s, provided maps and information for over seventy recreational trails in the South Central Region. The 2016 Update of the Regional Recreational Trails Mapping Project was completed by SCRCOG in collaboration with municipal staff, land trusts, conservation commissions, the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority (RWA), and the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. There are now over 100 trails for which maps and information are available. The 2016 Update refreshed the design and content of the trail brochures, which include a map of the trail(s), descriptive information, directions, parking information, permitted uses, and contact information. Additionally, the trail maps and related information are now available in two formats – tri-fold brochures and letter-size pages. For the first time, the recreational trails and associated information are featured in the Regional GIS Viewer.

Please note that all RWA trails require a permit. For more information regarding the RWA trails, and to obtain a permit, visit http://www.rwater.com/products-and-services/recreation/.
