Description

Excellent park in Albemarle County, multi-use for horses, bikes, and humans! Plenty of trails wrapping their way through the park, although all trails are steep and strenuous. Paths are well maintained so the hiking isn't very technical, but prepared to cover some elevation.

The park is very, very rocky. Rocks abound. It could very well be a destination for the more determined climber who doesn't mind a longer or more strenuous approach. The problem here isn't so much finding rock, as finding good, climbable rock. The rock is larger of the same type: a rough, high friction igneous blend. So make sure you bring your callouses with you when climbing. 

Getting There

From Charlottesville, follow Barracks Road which turn into Garth Road to the Piedmont Store in Whitehall, go around the curve to the right onto Rt. 810 (do not go straight up to Sugar Hollow), Follow Rt. 810 for 7.8 miles and parking area is on the left.  Approximately 45 minutes from Charlottesville.
