Trail Work Continues at Pocahontas SP and James River Park

December 6, 2017 · 1 minute read

Winter is trail-building season for work crews in the Richmond region. There are always projects going with volunteer needs, including the below two courtesy of RVA MORE. If you use the James River Park System or Pocahontas State Park trails, consider donating some time to one of these work events (or a future one: follow them on FB here).

Pocahontas State Park:
Progress is fast and furious out at Pocahontas these days. New trails ‘Corkscrew’ and Trail 15 (name TBD) opened Thanksgiving weekend and are already getting a lot of traffic and putting smiles on riders’ faces.  Next on the docket is Trail 11.  This is another downhill trail that will eventually make it all the way to the lake and tie in to Trail 15.  In the short term the goal is to get this trail to ~80% complete status so it can be opened to riders ASAP, this point is fast approaching, but we can use your help to get there!

We will be meeting at the parking off of Courthouse Road (7298 Courthouse Rd, Chesterfield, VA) at 9 am on Saturday.

James River Park System:
Work will continue on a trail armoring project on Buttermilk Trail that was started a few weeks ago.  Meet at 9 a.m. at the Reedy Creek parking lot at the intersection of Hillcrest Road and Riverside Drive (4111 Hillcrest Road, Richmond, VA).

Any cancellations will be announced by Friday night via email and the rvaMORE Facebook page.
