On June 11th we held our first annual Bike/Walk/Run at the North County Trailway in Pleasantville, NY. This trail is a beautiful example of what the future Merritt Parkway Trail could be. The free event featured a variety of routes between 10 to 53-mile bike routes and 5k to 10k routes for walkers and runners. A special thanks to our supporting partners: Danny's Cycles, Fleet Feet Stamford, and Pacific Cycling & Triathlon. Thank you to everyone who attended to show their support!

The Merritt Parkway Trail Alliance is a group of volunteers advocating for a proposed 37-mile multi-use public trail and greenway stretching from Greenwich to Stratford, CT. The trail would run through the woods within the 150-foot wide right-of-way owned by the Connecticut Department of Transportation on the south side (northbound) of the beautiful and iconic Merritt Parkway. A safe and wheelchair accessible paved trail for recreation and transportation to be enjoyed by families, runners, walkers, cyclists, cross country skiers, dog walkers, and nature lovers. The future Merritt Parkway Trail will provide a key missing link in the East Coast Greenway - a developing 3,000 mile trail system from Maine to Key West, Florida.

We are working to create the 1st mile of the trail in Stamford, CT. The Merritt Parkway Trail will:
1.) improve quality of life and increase transportation and recreation options for its citizens,
2.) increase property values of the homes and commercial buildings near the trail,
3.) create tourist destinations and sources of economic development while building community,
4.) enable users to enjoy the beauty of CT and the Merritt Parkway’s historic bridges and landscape,
5.) preserve greenspace and reduce pollution and noise for future generations to come!
