Support the Saunders-Monticello Trail

The Monticello Trailblazers support the work of the Thomas Jefferson Foundation to promote and preserve the development and maintenance of the 230-acre linear park and its system of trails. By becoming a Monticello Trailblazer, you can help us to ensure that this community treasure is enjoyable and safe for everyone.

With a gift of $25 or more, you can join the many others—runners, walkers, bikers, and trail users of every kind—who are investing and caring for the Monticello Trail. Let's blaze the trail together!
