Installation of water and sewer upgrades as part of the Mountaintop Project are currently underway. Work will mainly take place at night and will cease daily by 6:00 a.m. so that guests on The Trail will experience minimal change in routine. We will continue to provide updates as they become available. You can also visit our blog for posts about the Mountaintop Project.
The Saunders-Monticello Trail and surrounding 370 acres is Central Virginia's most popular park.
With native hardwood forest, deep ravines and spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the trail winds its way toward Monticello and back in a very manageable four miles. A maximum grade of 5% keeps it completely accessible to walkers, cyclists and those in wheelchairs.
