Run The Planet is proud to introduce our new affiliate Run.com, the best running route resource on the web. If you are looking for a new Ridgefield running route, or want to share your favorite Ridgefield running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
The Ridgefield Rail Trail is great for running in this area. The trail is only for pedestrians, so no annoying Sport Utility Vehicles running you over. Park behind the Richard Venus building across from the Police station. Start running up Prospect street away from Main street, at the bottom you will see gates. This is where the trail starts. It is a 2.25 mile slightly downhill run and then 2.25 mile back uphill. The surface is gravel and the distance is marked every 0.2 mile! In the summer you will encounter turtles and also turkey vultures waiting on top of the electricity poles for somebody to collapse. Enjoy.
