If you’re wondering “where are the trails in Crozet that they’re always working on?” Here’s a map. :)

    Hey, Jim. I appreciate all of this info. I followed the link to the Crozet Trails map. I am curious why all trails end before reaching The Highlands. Is it because of the zip code change and jurisdiction issues? It feels like we are the ugly step daughter, over here.

      That’s a great question. I have no idea, but I know someone who might … give me a few days.

      Hi Julie,
      The reason it appears no trails lead to the Highlands is because of the Railroad tracks. In the Masterplan, all the trails to the south of Rt. 240 connect neighborhoods and parks, but because of the Railroad tracks, there is no way to have a trail connect to the Highlands from that direction. One option would be to have a sidewalk along Rt. 240 that connects the Highlandsto the bridge to Western Ridge, but as far as I know, there is no plan to put sidewalks along Rt. 240. However, even though the plan does not currently show it, there has been an expressed desire from severa folks to have safe pedestrian and bike routes along Rt. 240. This is less of a “trail” issue and more of a VDOT issue. Not insurmountable.
