East Coast Greenway — spanning from Maine to Florida — will link Bloomfield and Simsbury

A small slice of a trail running from the Canadian border to Key West is now under construction, connecting Bloomfield to Simsbury. The East Coast Greenway is a 3,000-mile trail from Maine to Florida for active transportation like biking, walking, running and inline skating. Connecticut is home to 200 miles of the trail, 104 of which are protected and separate from the road. The route is considered 53 percent completed in the state. The trail remains a work in progress, with the latest update bridging a 1-mile gap from Bloomfield to the Tariffville neighborhood in Simsbury, where bicyclists previously needed to scale a steep hill. The new connection will run along Route 189.
