On Saturday, July 16, the Crew took the mowers and string trimmers out to Westhall – it was time to get the Lower Westhall trail in shape for the summer. This lovely trail covers a U-shape path from Nicolet Court down the hill toward Lickinghole Creek. After following the creek for a short distance, it then leads back uphill through the woods, to its terminus at Eastern Avenue. Take a short walk for views of wildflowers, blackberries, butterflies and the creek.
Hey all! The Crozet Trails Crew will have an informational booth this Saturday at the StarrHIll IPA Jambeereeee. (noon-6pm). There will be beer, music, games, beer, and booths. And beer.
Stop by, drink great beer from all around the area, and say Hi to the CTC folks!
The Trails Crew was out at Lickinghole Basin again, to replace a bridge that had seen better days. The weather cooperated, and we had enough hands to finish up while the sun was still shining. Thanks especially to Lucas and Andy, from the Field School, for their interest in trail development.
The crew had a productive morning re-routing the trail around a marshy spot on the basin and placing our first bench, in a nice shady spot with a view of the water birds. It’s just a short walk to enjoy the natural beauty of this lovely area right in Crozet!
Spring weather has brought out the Trails Crew on several work days recently. We have made improvements to a bridge next to the Dog Park in Crozet Park, adding hand rails. We have re-routed the top of the trail in Foothills Crossing slightly, to make it less steep. And while we were out, we’ve cut back brush and brambles and removed overhanging branches along the Connector trail and the trail in Crozet Park.
