I'm in Burlington, I actually just did a 16 mile bike ride along the Farmington River Trail yesterday. I work in Windsor so weekdays are a little rough unless it's early morning, but maybe we can do a group run/walk someday?

Hi- I love going to Burlington to walk along the Farmington river..not far from New Hartford...I live in Farmington,the Plainville end but that walk is worth the drive ! It starts out in Collinsville near the damn and goes down into Burlington then Farmington...beautiful along the water..lots of kids on bikes and strollers so it is family friendly !

Hello,
This is the reason I joined so to find like minded people who like to walk.
Being single some areas are just not safe to be alone.
I am in the Torrington area but grew up in Avon. Have a wide availability.
Let me know what works for you.

That's cool! I work in Torrington so I wouldn't be able to do anything during lunch with you. So sorry! We like to walk on the new path between Winsted/Torrington now because it's so much closer than going to the ones in Farmington or Unionville. We can always go up to Regional sometime and walk the track too! I keep forgetting about it! The little one could ride his bike on it or can just play in the field!

I found out (after doing it twice lol) that we don't sign out for lunch (it's paid) so even if I want to take a short walk, I can! They told me that sitting there all day is no good (especially where I work) so to make sure I get out. Would have been nice to know during those nice days when I couldn't enjoy the weather! lol

I am in Winsted myself but i work in New Hartford.
Do you have a place to walk? If not, where i work there is a large field along the water that we can walk. I try to take my lunches out of the office so that i get out there and move around. (otherwise i sit all day). let me know if you'd like to give it a go.

I'm in Winsted! It's close enough! Where would you want to go! I have my 4 year old but he rides his bike now which is soooo nice! I can't wait to hit the paths in Farmington, Unionville, Winsted/Torrington, or anywhere else! I can actually try to job some while he's riding! That will be so great! Guess we just need to get rid of this rain first!
