RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- The Rotary Club of Ridgefield donated the first $1,000 toward the $20,000 Trail Plan for the Norwalk River Valley Trail’s initial section in Ridgefield, dubbed the Ridgefield Ramble.

The Ridgefield Ramble will be a two-mile section of the NRVT running north from the intersection of Simpaug Turnpike and Route 7, to Bobby’s Court on the Ridgefield/Redding line. This section offers beautiful vistas along the Norwalk River, a combination of State and Conservation property allowing construction of the NRVT.

Immediately following the Rotary Club’s donation, another $5,500 was quickly donated from families and businesses towards the cost of the Trail Plan for the Ridgefield Ramble.

“We’re already one-third of the way towards our $20,000 goal for the Trail Plan. It’s great to see the enthusiasm for the NRVT here in Ridgefield,” said NRVT Executive Director Charlie Taney.

“The Rotary Club is delighted to invest projects like the NRVT that have such positive impact on the Ridgefield community,” said Rotary Club President Robert Herber.

Anyone interested in donating towards the Trail Plan for the Ridgefield Ramble can reach Taney at ctaney@nrvt-trail.com.
