Registration is closed
Join us for our 16th annual hike around the City on the Rivanna Trail! Registration opens on September 23 for RTF members, and on October 7 for the general public.
  • Approximate distance: ~ 19 miles.
  • Approximate hiking time: approximately 8 hours. This is variable due to rest stops and hiking speeds. We are not out to set any time record, but will keep a steady pace.
  • We hike around the City in counterclockwise direction, using road walks and detours where necessary. We will have some rock-hops across streams, so participants may want to bring a pair of water-safe shoes or sandals.
  • Start: Riverview Park is located at the eastern end of Chesapeake Street. We leave promptly at 6:30 AM.
  • What to bring: boots or sturdy shoes; clothes appropriate for “urban wilderness” hiking and for weather conditions; stream crossing shoes or sandals; water; snacks; personal needs.
  • Important note: This is a strenuous hike. Be sure you build up your endurance and break in your boots before hike day.
  • How to participate: No cost. Just register so we’ll know to expect you.
  • We'll send out more details to registrants the week before the hike.
