Farmington Canal Trail is great for a family bike ride. It's a generally flat, paved, and tree lined trail. The only caveat is that the New Haven side of the trail is known to be a high crime area. To avoid New Haven, you can park in Hamden CT (across the street from Hamden High School) in the CVS & Bed Bath and Beyond parking lot. You can use the facilities in the CVS and ride onto the trail just 100 feet from the parking lot.

This video gives you a good flavor for the beginning of the trail in New Haven and the first 10 miles. I'm not crazy about the narrator or music
