In the year 2020 we have seen many health, science, economic, and social challenges.
One of the greatest assets in Connecticut is our Greenways. Usage this year is up 3 to 4 times from previous years. The Connecticut Greenways between New Haven and Southwick, MA are among the most scenic and easy riding, in the Northeast.
The Farmington Canal Heritage Trail aka., East Coast Greenway provides a spectacular 1 day journey through our states' history.
The Canal was built in the 1820's, and was superseded by the Railroads in the later half of the 1800's. The Railroad ceased to operate in the 1970's, and a decade latter the greenways were just in their infancy.
Today there are over 36,000 miles of multiuse trails in America.
