Saturday at Lickinghole Basin – Have a Seat!

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 justĀ a short walk to enjoy the natural beauty of this lovely area right in Crozet!

 

The Crew Has Been at Work

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.

Trails Crew vs Pine Tree

Members of the Trails Crew trimmed up the Connector Trail between Westhall and Foothills Crossing, including removal of a small tree that had fallen across the trail. The wet ground, high winds, and ice storm have caused several trees to fall this winter. The sooner we know about them, the quicker we can get them cleared. So if you see a problem on the trail, be sure to let us know, by using our Contact Us page.

Trails Crew at Work in Old Trail

Ten trail lovers showed up to tidy up the Creekside Trail in Old Trail. It’s in good shape and ready to walk! Just watch out for the muddy entrance to the trail at the western end, due to ongoing construction in the area.

Thanks to all who came to help on a cold morning.
