Beautiful trail system with well marked trails. Looping yellow and blue will get you a 3 mile hike. There is also fishing that is stocked with trout. Soon after leaving the parking area along an abandoned road, the park envelopes you with trails that pass through pine grove after pine grove. There are trails that run along the banks of the East Branch of the Naugatuck River along with some unique bridges that cross the waterway. The trails pass huge boulders — including the monstrous Dino Testone Boulder — and along the banks of scenic marshes and ponds. The Connecticut Forest & Park Association's Blue-Blazed John Muir Trail runs about two miles in a loop around the heart of the old dairy-farm-turned-state-park. Dairy farmer Edwin Fadoir owned about 160 acres of the 406-acre park before selling it to the state in the 1960s. He raised Guernsey cows and ran a milk route through area towns. The park bears the farm's name and one of the paths is called "Fadoir Spring Trail." The park opened in 1970 with swimming, camping and picnicking. Today, only hiking is allowed and a portion of the park is now home to the Balsa Bandits Model Airplane Club. Show more

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.
