The Grove

Within a few days I shall bury myself in the groves of Monticello and become a mere spectator to passing events. -- Jefferson to Alexander von Humboldt, 1809

Overview of the Saunders-Monticello Trail

The Thomas Jefferson Parkway was developed by the Thomas Jefferson Foundation to create a scenic entrance along Route 53 to Monticello. The Parkway also serves as a recreational and educational resource for visitors and as a pedestrian and cycling link between Monticello and the local community. Along the Parkway, four miles of utility lines were buried, guardrails were removed when possible, and the road shoulders were landscaped.
