Everyone welcome — families, friends, kids. This is a fantastic hike at the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship, about 20 minutes north of Round Hill.
Note: There is one stream crossing where you’ll get your feet wet. The water comes up to about mid-calf. All the more fun, if you ask me!
“Experience the Blue Ridge Center’s 900 acre land preserve on a 10-mile trail network winding through forests and meadows, following valley streams, and climbing up the mountainside. Trails are free to the public and open from dawn until dusk every day of the year.
Farmstead Loop: The Blue Ridge Center’s signature hiking trail. Just over a mile long and with minimal elevation change, the trail is perfect for all ages and fitness levels. This scenic trail, once a road through a 19th century farming community, passes by multiple historic structures, Wortman Pond, and Piney Run.”
