North County Bike Trailway

This quiet scape of picturesque lake communities is perfect for the active, contemplative or easygoing lifestyle. Travel through time in the Somers Hamlet Historic District and learn about the Elephant Hotel, which serves as the Town Hall but also, fascinatingly enough plays an important role in the history of the American circus! Resources for recreation are plentiful with your choice of several town parks and the span of the Angle Fly Preserve. Or maybe, you too will find your peace of mind along the North County Trailway.

One of my favorite things about Somers is the North County Bike Trailway! It is a 22 mile paved trail through the woods used by bicycle rider, runners and walkers. I love riding with my husband as I am terrified to ride on the road. Sometimes, we will stop in the next town for a snack at a curbside café. The trail also passes Stuart’s Farm where you can pick apples, pumpkins, peaches or cut a Christmas tree, of course you will need a car for this visit!

Somers is the home to a condominium community called Heritage Hills. The complex is very desirable offering condominiums to fit anyone's needs. Amenities includes several pools and tennis courts scattered throughout, a clubhouse, fitness center, bocce ball and many other clubs and activities. A private 9 hole and 18 hole golf courses are also located on the property.
 
Although Somers has a "small town" feel, it is in close proximity to Danbury, CT, White Plains, NY and major highways. Danbury and White Plains are small cities offering larger options for shopping and more!
