Save the date: National Public Lands Day, Saturday, September 23, 2023

The agenda for Loop de'Ville 2023 won't be finalized until summer, but will include our annual hike of the entire 20-mile loop, as well as bike rides, runs, and family walks. 

Thirty Years on the Rivanna Trail

Loop de'Ville 2022

2022 is the Rivanna Trail's 30th Anniversary, and to celebrate this milestone - as well as National Public Lands day - we expanded our annual Loop de'Ville hike into a full weekend of special events.

We offered a series of hikes and bike rides on the trail, and events with live music, and local beer, wine, and food trucks offering their wares. Over 200 people registered for our guided events on the trail, and the closing party celebrated our birthday in style.

We're already planning for 2023 - look for details here next summer.
