Rebuild Trail Over Reedy Creek

Hit Crossroads or the Farmer’s Market before heading into the woods to work on the trail.




This summer hasn’t been kind to our local trails. Just look at last night for a prime example. Storms like Hurricane Michael have damaged trails throughout the system.

On Saturday RVA MORE and the city trail crew will be working to repair a crossing of Reedy Creek between Patrick Henry and Forest Hill Park. As always they’ll welcome volunteers.

More from RichmondOutside:

If you want to contribute to the rebuilding effort, meet at 9 a.m. on Saturday, October 13th at the creek crossing. You can enter the trail where it crosses the paved path at the southern end of the park close to Forest Hill Ave. From there it is a short walk down to the creek crossing.

Bring gloves, sturdy work shoes and water. Keep in mind that the farmers market will be running at Forest Hill Park, so parking could be tight closer to the Stone House parking lot. That also means delicious donuts (and other goodies) will be available as pre-trail-building fuel. Street parking further down Forest Hill Avenue near the Patrick Henry School could be another option. Any cancellation will be sent out via email and posted on the rvaMORE facebook page.
