FARRINGTON WOODS

A 200-acre open space owned by the town of Danbury, Farrington Woods sits off the westbound side of I-84 along the border of CT and NY. Home to Sanford Pond, and the head of the Still River, the trail system is a mix of decade-old jeep trails and new multi-use singletrack that offers fun, flowing trails for both experienced and new riders, walkers, hikers, and trail runners.

 

While still under construction, this park will eventually be home to 6-8 miles of sustainable, multi-use NEMBA built singletrack. There already exists a 2.5-mile loop along the lower section of the park near the water that is relatively mellow (especially for Fairfield County!), and one of the longer, fully-benched trails in the area climbs almost 500' to the highest point in the park. Epic views both along the water and from the lookout will reward users for their efforts and keep them coming back.

 

At present, and with only limited fire road riding, there exists a solid 5-mile loop. Trail blazes, signage, and bathroom facilities to come this Spring. Check back for more details soon!
