All month — Drink a beer at Starr Hill, and the Crozet Trails Crew gets $1! Get out on the trail and then enjoy a beer.
Did you know you can walk to the brewery from the Crozet Connector Trail? Take the new mulch-covered trail up to Eastern Avenue from the side of the pedestrian tunnel toward the park. Head left on Eastern Avenue to the end, then turn left on Park Ridge Drive. Walk to the end of the sidewalk, then a few more feet, to the utility boxes. Turn right to Union Mission Lane, follow it across the railroad tracks to Starr Hill. It’s an easy walk or bike ride, about a half mile.
Wednesday, June 5 — Cheers for Charity kickoff party at Starr Hill, 5:30-7:30. Come socialize, and support the trails by drinking beer. What could be easier?

The weekend of March 22-23, volunteers from the Blue Ridge Home Builders Association completed a service project for the Crozet Greenway – steps from Birchwood Hill Road to the Creekside Trail in Old Trail. Thank you, BRHBA; it’s been great working with you!
We have a workday this Saturday, March 23 at the Creekside trail in Old Trail. Besides general pruning and trimming, we will be assisting the Blue Ridge Home Builders Association to build steps from Birchwood Hill Road to the trail, greatly improving access and safety on this steep slope. Meet at 9 am on Saturday at the corner of Wellbourne Lane and Birchwood Hill Road in Old Trail. BRHBA also plans to work Friday 3/22, 9 am to 3 pm if you are available to help out.
