The 10th Annual Crozet Trails Crew (CTC) 5K Race and Kids Fun Run is open for registration.

It’s the race where everyone wins. Participants get to compete on one of prettiest greenways in Albemarle County, and CTC uses the registration fees and other donations to expand and promote Crozet’s trail network. Recent improvements include stabilizing soft spots with crushed stone, a new stairway to access the Creekside trail head, benches and a tunnel under the new Eastern Avenue extension.

When, Where and What Time


October 12th at Crozet Park.


The Kids Fun Run begins at 8:00 AM followed by the 5K race at 8:30 AM. At 9:30 AM we will award medals and hand out raffle prizes donated by big-hearted Crozet merchants. We would love to have you join us. It is $20 to register on-line and $25 in person.

Visit crozettrailscrew.org or RunSignUp for more details and to register.

The outdoors are at your doorstep – we hope to see you on October 12th. Thank you for contributing.

Crozet Trails Will Cross Lickinghole Creek!

This is fantastic news. In the CTC email today.

Be sure to vote tomorrow–every vote matters! Then celebrate at Pro Re Nata Brewery this Wednesday 11/7, 5:30-6:30 pm with the Crozet Trails Crew’s Appreciation of our Albemarle County Parks & Recreation Crew partners–Tucker Rollins, Jim Barbour, and Matthew Smith–who help us in so many ways all year by mowing, clearing trail, laying crushed stone, and clearing fallen trees.

This weekend, join us for a Guided Trail Walk on Saturday, Nov 10 at 10 am. Meet at the kiosk in Crozet Park. This walk was postponed from October 27 due to weather.

Great news! The County has received permission to extend the Crozet trail system across Lickinghole Creek toward Route 250. This is a big step in connecting neighborhoods on the south side of Lickinghole, such as Cory Farms and Liberty Hall, to Crozet Park and downtown Crozet via the Crozet Connector Trail. *We will begin work on building the trail on the south side of the creek at a CTC Workday at 9 am on Saturday, Nov. 17. To get there, take Park Road past Crozet Park into Westhall. Turn left on Westhall Drive. Meeting place is one block on the right, where Eastern Avenue ends in a dead end. Wear long pants and sturdy shoes. Work gloves, hats, and insect repellent strongly advised, as we may be clearing thick underbrush.

Our next monthly meeting will be Thursday, Nov. 15, 6:30-8 pm at Mi Rancho in Old Trail.
