Windsor Center River Trail Walk

Another after work walk...

The Windsor Center River Trail is a one-mile paved loop, part of which runs beside the Farmington River.  We may make two laps if we're feeling energetic.  This will be a slow, socially placed walk and a good chance to unwind after a day at work.

Kids and leashed dogs are welcome. For the kids, or the young at heart, this trail is all paved and can be done on roller blades!

Parking lot is located across the street from Bart's restaurant on Palisado Avenue in Windsor. If the trailhead lot fills up, park in the boat launch lot behind Bart's. (Please don't park in front of Bart's as those spaces are for customers!)  Parking lot is not that large, so attendance is limited accordingly.

Address for Bart's for your GPS is 55 Palisado Avenue, Windsor.

Hot dog aficionados may wish to go to Bart's for a bite after.

Information about the trail and directions can be found here http://www.ct.gov/dot/lib/dot/documents/dbikes/126.pdf

Note about dogs:  While this is a dog-friendly hike, the dog owners need to be responsible.  Park rules require leashes.  If you choose to break that rule and let your dog off the leash, please be sure it is okay with the other hikers (some of whom may not be dog people) and be sure you can control your dog when off leash.  Finally, please be prepared and clean up after your dog when needed.

    It was nice to see such a good group there and that some of you made a third lap (I stopped after two!). This is a good short after work walk, so I will post it some more, though maybe have us start over on Pleasant Street where there is more parking.

    I walked the trail today (Sunday) and it looked great. Even heard the frogs over in the pond. Let's hope the predicted snow on Monday stays away!

    Forecast is saying snow showers for Monday. I'll probably still walk if it's just snow showers, but may cancel if it's raining. Will update when we get closer.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
