Last Updated:November 3, 2013
Length: Still River Greenway [Southern Loop]; 1.5 miles
Difficulty: Moderate. Hard packed dirt, grass & woodchip trail. Mt bike recommended.
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 Phase I is a partially completed southern loop. Phase II will extend the trail north. 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 located here. Follow the paved trail down to an intersection.
Note; Future plans call for extending the trail north (right) underneath Silvermine Rd as Phase II.
Continuing straight along Phase I the paved trail quickly ends before traveling underneath Route 7 as a hard packed dirt & woodchip trail (Future plans call for paving the whole trail). The Still River is along your right. The trail turns inland through the woods, where you'll encounter some tree roots and rocks occasionally. Come to a gazebo after 0.4 miles. Keep to the left and you'll come to an intersection. This is the loop section. Heading left you briefly follow a power line before looping right and briefly picking up the river again. More of a grassy surface through here. You complete the loop at a mile and head left returning to the parking lot for a total of 1.5 miles.
