This particular property that the Conservation Commission has acquired will be extremely helpful in establishing the Torrington Trails Network, a system of trails that we hope will provide miles of outdoor recreational opportunities to residents of Torrington and the surrounding area. An outdoor trails network would thus bring in tourists and additional revenue for our local restaurants and stores. This Newfield Road property brings us one step closer to creating a trail that connects the Red Mountain Ave Trail to Sunnybrook State Park.
