Length:                  Still River Greenway; 1.6 miles

                                 [Southern Section]; 0.6 miles 

                                 [Northern Section]; 1 mile                                

Difficulty:              Easy. Paved trail.

Directions:

From Route 7 take exit 12 to Route 202 west. Take your first left on Silvermine Rd. Cross over Route 7 and take your first right into the parking lot which is located just below the Police Dept.

The Still River Greenway is an envisioned greenway extending along the Still River corridor from Danbury to Brookfield. In Brookfield a 1.6 mile section is complete. In Danbury, a 2.2 mile hiking trail has been constructed along the river. For more information visit; STILL RIVER ALLIANCE

Starting from the Silvermine Road  parking lot; You'll find a map board and Porto-Potty located here. Follow the paved trail down to an intersection.

Note; Just past the parking lot is a gravel trail. This leads up to Arthur A. Harris Linear Park. Sports fields, play ground. I believe this is slated to become a paved trail all the way to Town Hall for more parking in the future.

Northern Route; Heading right along the paved trail you travel underneath Silvermine Rd and follow a boardwalk to an iron Bridge over the Still River. From here you can spot all the damage caused by micro-bursts in the Spring of 2018. Destroyed a lot of trees. Continue along the boardwalk crossing over a couple of smaller bridges as the trail is paved again. After 0.7 miles the trail parallels Route 202. Pass by a trail map before coming to the currant end of the trail at 1 mile.

Note; Future plans call for extending the trail north to 'Four Corners' (Station Rd &Route 202). This will allow access to local businesses.

Southern Route; Heading left the paved trail travels underneath Route 7. The Still River is along your right. The trail turns inland through the woods before ending at a cul-de-sac after 0.6 miles..
