Rivanna Trails

O-Hill Trails Upgraded

Observatory Hill is one of the most popular segments of the Rivanna Trail, and that use resulted in some particularly eroded and muddy sections immediately south of Ivy Road. On March 10, supplemented by some three dozen volunteers from the Charlottesville Area Mountain Bike Club, the monthly work party completed significant improvements. Muddy patches were re-graded, drainage channels dug, trash removed, and a couple sections re-routed to higher - and drier - ground. CAMBC members regularly provide their time and labor in support of the Rivanna Trail, and RTF could not have completed such a large project in one morning without their help. Be sure to check out the improvements! (Some photographs here.)
