Come explore the Fairfield Loop Trail.
Circle around Fairfield on our sixteen-mile-long trail. In fact, we think of it as a long, narrow linear park, with a variety of adventures to see and do along the way.
With such a variety of terrain (prairies, woodlands, lakes, wetlands), and connections to many city and county parks, it is an experience unlike most trails.
