The Trout Brook Trail is West Hartford’s long-term greenway project that provides walkers, runners, and bicyclists a safe, enjoyable route to exercise and explore.
This eight to ten foot wide, accessible, paved trail follows Trout Brook from New Park Avenue to Jackson Avenue at Trout Brook Drive.
Convenient parking for trail access can be found at the Elmwood Community Center’s lower lot or the Beachland Park lot adjacent to Quaker Lane South. Trail entrances are well marked at the following locations: in the Elmwood Community Center lower parking lot, at the northwest and southeast corners of the Quaker Lane South Bridge over Trout Brook, on New Park Avenue at the bridge over Trout Brook, or opposite the west end of Jackson Avenue.
Future extensions of the trail to the north are currently in various stages of design and planning. When completed, Trout Brook Trail will stretch from New Park Avenue to Asylum Avenue, totaling 3.6 miles end-to-end. More information can be found on the town Engineering web page.
