The sun in shining and today’s (Saturday, April 20) walk to the Basin will be leaving Crozet Park at 10. Join us for a look at spring, right in our back yard.
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.
Meet at 9 a.m. on Saturday, January 26, at the trail entrance on Lake Tree Lane in Western Ridge (From Three Notch’d Road, turn on to Park Ridge Drive, go over the railroad overpass then first left on to Lake Tree Lane. After 5th right (Vista View Lane) look for the trailhead on the right side of the street.)
We will be improving drainage on the soggiest parts of the trail — wear boots and clothes that will stand up to mud! We will have shovels and rakes, plus pruners and saws for the places we will need to re-route the trail to drier ground.
Check our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Crozet-Trails-Crew-195317697171781) after 8 a.m. that morning in case we have to cancel due to weather.
