Beat the heat by walking the trails early and late

The trails have all been recently cleared by the dedicated (and sometimes insanely-so) Crozet Trails Crew volunteers! The connector trail from Westhall to Western Ridge is clear as is the Western Ridge neighborhood trail (for Western Ridge residents and their guests). The lower Westhall trail is mostly cleared and will continue to be worked on in the next few weeks. The Henley Hornets trail at Beaver Creek should be in good shape as well (please let us know if it’s not).

So grab your favorite walking buddy and get out there! Help us keep the seasonal vegetation at bay by….walking.  If you feel like, bring a set of hand pruners and clip those overhanging vines and briers.

The summer heat is no reason to give up those wonderful trail walks– just head out early (before 9am) or in the evenings (after 7pm). If you bring your pup along for the fun, there are several watering spots on all the trails. See our most recent Crozet trail map here:
