Henley Hornets Trail "facelift"

A group of us worked on the Henley Hornets trail this past Saturday. We installed 2 signs, repaired some eroded tread, and rebuilt a few sections of "steps". It's a great walk and we look forward to adding on to this trail in the future. **note- Check out how happy we all look!

If you want to check out the Henley Hornets trail and help us clean it up and put up a few signs, meet tomorrow (Saturday) at 9am at the Beaver Creek reservoir parking lot.
Yes, even if it is cold!
We'll warm you up with good old-fashioned trail work.
See you there!

There a few things I'd like to update you all on:
1. We will have a CTC workday next Saturday, March 26th, at Beaver Creek reservoir (Henley Hornets Trail). We will be checking the trail for any maintenance issues, putting up a few signs, clearing, and investigating the stream crossings. Please meet at the parking lot at 9am. Bring tools if you'd like, and bring friends and family. This will be a great workday for kids as well.

2. The Crozet Community Advisory Council (CCAC) met last night and we have decided that the April CCAC meeting (Thursday, April 21st) will be dedicated to the topic of walking and biking to the local schools. This will be a great meeting to attend if you have any interest in the topic. I will send out more information to the CTC in mid-April. Mark your calendars.

3. We would like to plan a day to begin the lower portion of the Grayrock Ponds access trail. It is very important that we get buy-in and assistance from the Grayrock community. If you live in Grayrock and are interested in helping (or know someone who would like to help), please let me know. We'd like to plan this event for a weekend in mid-May. It will take several workdays to complete, likely spread out over a few months.

Do Not be Fooled!

I realize it has been several weeks since the last post, but that doesn't mean we haven't been busy with the trails! We have cleared a beautiful section of trail from West Hall to Lickinghole Creek, discussed future park plans for the area adjacent to Lickinghole creek, had a great monthly meeting, and explored options for completing the path/steps at the Grayrock Ponds Trail.

Please see the most recent Meeting Minutes by clicking on the tab above. Some exciting news!!

Next workday- Saturday, March 26. Details to follow.
