Welcome to the Quinnipiac River Trail!
Welcome! The Q-River Trail is back and better than ever. In 2016 the Clark Brothers Dam in Southington and the Carpenters dam in Meriden were removed to once again allow the free migration of fish and to welcome back the return of paddlers and fishing fans to the Quinnipiac.
Volunteers have completed multiple clean-ups of the river and riverbanks. Launches and take-outs have been revamped, too. Additionally, trailhead kiosks have been installed, and a new trail guide has been created along the route with numbered stops to denote important areas and information along the river.
Our online guide complements the trail. Use your device to look up additional information or report water hazards or wildlife sightings in real time.
The Q-River Trail Celebration and Flotilla on June 3, 2018, marked the return of the new and improved Q-River Trail. Thank you to all who made the day so special!
