Go green for St. Patrick’s Day by helping to maintain a Crozet trail! We have a workday this Saturday, March 17 at 9 am at the Creekside Trail in Old Trail (apologies for the date error in our last email). This beautiful trail that runs along Lickinghole Creek needs some attention–we will build a section of boardwalk and make other trail improvements. Wear sturdy shoes or boots and bring water, pruners/loppers, and work gloves.
Directions: from Jarman’s Gap Road, turn into Old Trail on Old Trail Drive. Go through the first traffic circle, then turn right on Welbourne Lane to pass through the Creekside gate/pylons. Entrance to the trail is .2 miles on the left, almost directly across from Millstream Drive. Park along the street. If coming from 250, simply reverse!
Continue the celebratory spirit into April by raising a toast to our trails! Starr Hill Brewery has once again named the Crozet Trails Crew as the April beneficiary of Cheers for Charity! $1 of every pint sold during the month will be donated to our work building and maintaining Crozet Trails. Plan to attend some of our planned special events at Starr Hill (and buy a beer or two while you’re there)–or just stop by for no reason at all!
Saturday, April 7, 2 pm, Kickoff party – an informal gathering to celebrate our work (and sell beer). If you already know the Trails Crew, come for the fun. If you don’t know us, come on out to meet some friendly people and learn about the trails.
Sunday, April 15, 2 pm — Bike Maintenance Demo presented by Cor from the Crozet Bicycle Shop. Learn how to do simple repairs and bring your questions. We’ll be giving away a couple of bike tune-ups as door prizes.
Sunday, April 22, 1 pm – Earth Day 4K Trail Race. More details to come.
Our next monthly meeting will be Thursday, March 22, 6:30-8 pm at Mi Rancho in Old Trail Town Center. See you on the trails,
