Shoreline Greenway Trail is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to building a 25-mile continuous path for bicyclists, walkers and hikers on the Connecticut Shoreline from Lighthouse Point in New Haven through East Haven, Branford, and Guilford to Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison.
Join us on Saturday, November 1st at 10 am for a bike ride from the Guilford town green to Lake Quonnipaug. SGT leader Terry Maguire will lead an easy, mostly flat 18 mile round trip ride up State Street past historic homes, along Little Meadow Rd and South Hoop Pole Rd to loop around the lake, with two route options, and a short stretch on narrow Route 77. Helmets required; waivers will be provided to sign. Parking available around the Green. Meet on east side of Town Green across from Town Hall. For info call Terry at 203-214-4744
Open Friday, October 31 and Saturday, November 1 from 10:00 am-4:00 pm; and Sunday, November 2, from 12:00-4pm, this unique, highly energy efficient, ‘passive house’ is a gem selected by national Home of Distinction for its excellence. Tour the house and enjoy the property’s expansive water views across the marshes to Long Island Sound.
Proceeds of the tour will benefit Shoreline Greenway Trail and Hartford’s Camp Courant.
Designed by local Guilford architect Philippe Campus and built by local Madison contractor Bill Freeman of Celebration Contracting, this home, the second passive* house to be built in Guilford, provides ultimate energy efficiency and supreme comfort.
