Ridgefield Conservation Commission’s Trails
Wow. Look at this list! When Ridgefield was selected as a town to complete, I must admit my ignorance regarding trailed properties in the town. As you can see, there are a lot.
And this is in addition to Ridgefield’s town trails and some state parks and other stuff around town. I should note that the RCC isn’t a Land Trust in the classic sense… But the Land Conservancy of Ridgefield is. But the LCR has no maintained trails. The RCC has a million. So here we are.)
Thankfully, The RCC published a Walk Book in 2016 to help me on my way. The book almost matches the online directory, which is a good sign.
Presented in the order of the Ridgefield Walk Book, more or less. This list will probably change a bit as I work my way through the town.
