The Sue Grossman Still River Greenway runs for nearly 3 miles through a wooded corridor between Lanson Drive and Harris Drive in Torrington. The paved trail occupies the old right-of-way for the New York, New Haven, and Hartford Railroad's Naugatuck division. Great place to take the kids for bicycle ride or just a walk with your dog.
