Last Updated:March 18, 2010
Length: Still River Greenway; 3.5 miles
Difficulty: Easy. Paved trail.
From Route 8 take exit 46 to Pinewoods Rd and head west to Winsted Rd/Torrington Rd.
For the Larson Drive parking lot in Winsted [Northern End]; Turn right on Torrington Rd and travel about 0.7 miles to the parking lot on your right by the greenway sign.
For the Harris Drive parking lot in Torrington [Southern End]; Turn left on Winsted Rd and travel 2.2 miles to Harris Drive. The parking lot is on your left.
The Sue Grossman; Still River Greenway follows the abandoned rail bed of the New York-New Haven & Hartford RR, Naugatuck Division. Another very short rail trail has been developed in the town of Winsted that is worth checking out. See; Winsted Rail Trail .
Starting from the Larson Drive parking lot in Winsted [Northern End];
Note; A new section opened in 2022 Heading North about 0.6 miles to the Winsted Dept. of Motor Vehicles. I haven't checked out this new section yet. Future plans will extend the trail north to Walker Field (Willow & Rowley Streets) in downtown Winsted.
Heading South; The paved Sue Grossman; Still River Greenway follows the Still River and its wetlands. After 0.4 miles you'll spot an old cement RR Whistle stop marker along the right, left over from the old RR days. You'll cross the Torrington border just before crossing a bridge over the Still River. Check out all the beaver activity in the big marsh. You'll come to a kiosk with a couple of benches before crossing Pinewoods Rd at 0.7 miles. The trail pulls alongside Winsted Ave after a mile. You'll cross Greenwoods Rd at 1.7 miles and pass through Burrville Village. There's a coffee shop along the trail that could be an old train station? The trail currently ends after 2.9 miles at the Harris Drive parking lot.
Note; Future plans call for continuing the paved trail south in Torrington.
