Welcome to Shoreline Greenway Trail
The Shoreline Greenway Trail is being built as a continuous path for bicyclists, walkers and hikers and for people of all ages to enjoy the outdoors and help create healthy communities along the Connecticut shoreline.
Our 25-mile trail on the Connecticut Shoreline will extend from Lighthouse Point on the New Haven Harbor through East Haven, Branford and Guilford, to Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison.
Join us for another picturesque walk along our Trail through the woods to Farm River State Park with SGT leaders Barbara Brow and Mike Gambardella. Start at DC Moore School to the Bradford Preserve tidal wetlands, past the erratica along our 1200ft. granite-topped Trail completed
in April, to our new Trailhead parking lot. Then we cross street to enter the Farm River State Park, peaceful and pristine. Osprey nests, caves and river views. Easy walk, one short steep area. C. 1.5 miles, 1 1/2 hours. Meet at 10AM at the back of DC Moore School. [Read More...]

In early September, a dozen stalwart community service volunteers from Stantec, Inc. worked on the Tabor section of the Trail in Branford. This temporary trail extends three-quarters of a mile from Pine Orchard Road to the east to Tabor Drive to the west end, skirting beautiful Chet’s Pond.
Despite unexpected downpours in the late morning, John Insall, Kathy Lehmus, Gabe Knight, Dan Preli, Rebecca Snelling, Mike Falcano, Kent Gannon, Phil Champagne, Antonio De Camillo, Tom Hammerburg, John Eberle, and Phil Katz showed up ready to work, wielding handsaws, loppers, cutters and even a machete.
