The Farmington Valley Trails Council. Inc. is a CT 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation founded in 1992 to advocate for multi-use "rails-to-trails" in central Connecticut.  We work tirelessly to "close the gaps" in the 80-mile Farmington Canal Heritage Trail, the 26-mile Farmington River Trail, and the designated CT East Coast Greenway system.  The FVTC Maintenance Fund helps our area towns fund trail construction, enhancements and ongoing maintenance.  We also provide educational materials, 20,000 folding maps a year, and events that promote safety and proper etiquette on the trail system.  Look for up-to-date Trail information here, through newsletters and emails, and  published papers on trail advocacy, policy, maintenance and safety.  Come visit us on the trail and pick up a map or free handlebar bells and blinkies to promote trail safety.  We are only as strong as our members and volunteers...please get in touch and join us out on the trails!
