This three-hour, five-mile hike through the woodlands of Monticello to the Rivanna River is a perennial favorite of hikers and native plant enthusiasts alike. Enjoy the botanical treasures of early spring: trout lilies, Virginia blue bells, spring beauties, and more. Be prepared for a strenuous trek, muddy slopes and uphill climbs, and an intimate view of the wild Monticello, particularly the lovely plant communities along the river. Wear sturdy shoes!
