Forum on the Housatonic Covered Bride Bike Trail
A forum will be held to discuss the economic impact of the proposed bicycle trail that would connect nine Litchfield County communities along the Housatonic River.
Discussion and expert commentary by Carl Knoch of the Rails To Trails Conservancy, Bruce Adams (Kent First Selectman) and Ruth Skovron (Northwestern CT Regional Planning Collaborative).
Knoch is the author of “Trail User Surveys and Economic Impact,” a summary of 14 trail user expenditure surveys in the Northeastern U.S.
FORUM IS FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
The Housatonic Covered Bridge Bike Trail would use the old river roads that parallel the Housatonic, and typically have little traffic. Relative to the rest of the area, the river roads have very few hills, making for a more enjoyable ride. The proposed “HouBike” Trail is approximately 45 miles long, and would run from Ashley Falls, MA to New Milford, CT.
The Berkshires Trail would connect an several attractions:
- Bartholomew’s Cobble
- The Great Falls in Falls Village
- Dean Ravine and the Covered Bridge in Cornwall
- Kent Falls State Park
- The Sloane – Stanley Museum / Connecticut Antique Machinery Association
- The ledges at the Schaghticoke Indian Reservation
- Bulls Bridge and its gorge
- And Sega Meadows in New Milford.
HELD at THE INTERLAKEN INN, RT. 112, LAKEVILLE, CT
