Windsor Center River Trail, 1996

The Town of Windsor completed construction on the 1.25 mile trail along the Farmington River in October of 1996. Located on a 43-acre wooded preserve, Windsor’s eight-foot-wide paved river trail provides access to some 2,000 feet of the Farmington River. Early settlers used the land for farming and the area near the Farmington River for trading. A trail in the same area, known as Rowland Lane, was used by Windsor's first inhabitants to travel to Hartford. People are welcome to walk, jog, skate, or bicycle along two trail loops. Access to the trail is on Mechanic Street behind Town Hall, on Palisado Avenue across from Bart’s, and next to Bart's along the Farmington River. Copyright 2015 Windsor Historical Society.
