Since last summer, the Crozet Trails Crew has built 4 trail bridges: The Joseph Taylor Bridge (in honor of the winner of the 2011 Crozet Trails Day 5k), The Best Bridge (Named for the mastermind behind 3 of the 4 bridges), the Adam George Bridge (in honor of the winner of the 2012 Crozet Trails Day 5k), and the yet-to-be-named bridge (to be named in honor of the winner of the 2013 Crozet Trails Crew 5k on October 12th). You guys should really take time to walk the open section of the Crozet Connector Trail and check out these great bridges.
Here’s how you do it (3 ways):
1. The see the Best Bridge: Park at Crozet Park and walk down to the lower baseball field. Continue to the back corner where you can see a small white sign marking the trail entrance. Walk down that trail, staying to the right the whole time, and you will Cross the Best Bridge and then you will enter back into the Park on the opposite side of the baseball field.
2. The see the other 3: Park at Westhall in front of the small playground where there is space for about 4 cars. Walk to the end of Summerdean Road and follow the asphalt path down to the stream. Cross the stream (there will eventually be a bridge here) and take a right. Follow the mowed path for about .6 mileand you’ll see the Adam George Bridge, keep walking for another .2 mile and you will cross 2 more bridges. At this point, you’ll need to turn around and return the same way you came.
3. To see all 4!!: Register to race, jog, or walk the Crozet Trails Crew 5k on October 12th (www.crozettrailscrew.org/crozet-trails-day/) and enjoy 1-day access to the whole route! This course crosses 3 private properties and so this is your opportunity so experience the trail that we hope to see become a public trail in the future.
