In 1998 UVA granted the RTF permission to build trails through the lovely riparian forest behind the JAG, Law, and Darden Business Schools. In 1999 more than 100 volunteers helped the RTF build trail and three "organic"-style bridges here on National Trails Day. Now this section of trail is heavily used by members of the entire Charlottesville-Albemarle community
, and numerous volunteers have continued to donate their time keeping it open and accessible, including most recently Eagle Scout Ben Beiter
. A big thank you to UVA and to all volunteers!
