Trail Building Day at Bryom Forest – 11-9-2013

“We will be hosting the next volunteer trail building day at Byrom Forest this coming Saturday (11/9) from 9am-12noon. This month we will start working on a new trail. This trail will create another loop (approximately 3 miles) off of the top of the Little Flat Mountain Trail and work its way back to toward the parking area through a very beautiful and interesting part of the property with ravines, rock out crops and more.

Hope to see you out there on Saturday! Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Things to bring:

Hiking shoes




Favorite tool from home (I’ll also be providing tools)


Byrom Forest Preserve Park

6610 Blackwells Hollow Road

Crozet, VA 22932

1. Follow Garth Road from town to the Piedmont Store in Whitehall

2. Go around the curve to the right onto Route 810 (do not go straight to Sugar Hollow)

Crozet Trails Crew Weekend Fun – 3 September 2011

via email from the Crozet Trails Crew:

To mark the 45-day countdown to Crozet Trails Day 2011 (cue fireworks and kazoos), we will be having a workday this Sunday, beginning at 8:30am.

We will be working on a section of the WAHS cross country trail (where the 5k will be held). We’ll meet in front of Trailside Coffee (they open at 8am!) and then walk or carpool close to the trail.

I’ll bring tools, but feel free to bring a weed-eater if you want to. Please wear long pants, good shoes, work gloves, and bring water.

Work on the Crozet Trails this Weekend!

via email:

1. This Saturday (yes, just 2 days away, I know. Sorry for the late notice) we will be working at the Henley Hornets Trail at Beaver Creek reservoir. We will be working to clear seasonal vegetation, maintain the trail tread, reinforce steps, and discuss options for trail extension (!!). We have invited some local scout troops to join us. There are some projects along the trail that would be ideal for scout troops and/or Eagle scout candidates. If you have a scout (boy or girl) in your family, I encourage you to bring them out this Saturday to get involved, regardless of whether or not their troop is going to be present.
Please meet at the main Beaver Creek parking lot (behind the rowing building) at 8:30am. Bring gloves and water. The County will provide the tools.

2. As we continue to work with the community in our trail-building efforts, it it very important that the CTC be well-represented. In an effort to keep any one Crew member from spreading themself too thin, we would greatly appreciate a Community Liaison volunteer! This person would come to our monthly meetings, keep abreast of what we are working on, and communicate with the Crozet Community in assorted ways (Crozet Gazette,, Crozet Business Networking Group, etc.). This person would also lead the charge in contacting local business owners regarding Crozet Trails Day (in other words, you’d tell the rest of us who we need to go talk to and generally what to tell them). This position is so vital to what we are doing and I would work closely with this volunteer to make sure that you are not asked to do too much. If you want to talk more about it or think you may be interested, let me know.
