“A mowed grass trails with big views and a great location.”— Steve Creech
The mowed grass trail will open up and take you down to a creek at the northwest end of the Meadows Trails. Passing by benches with views of Brush Mountain, you'll open up into the larger meadow. If turning left at this junction, you'll stay along the northern edge of the meadow. The rolling trail passes by a weathered cemetery tucked into the trees and towards the eastern end passes houses and backyards. Please respect the homeowners' properties.
At the eastern end of the meadow is a small connector trail to the five acre Westover Hills park with tennis and basketball courts. Traveling westward from this point along the southern edge of the meadow may provide some shade and eventually take you past the New River Land Trust's Nature Play Space and back to the historic farm buildings.
The trails tend to not get muddy, though they are often on a natural slant meaning that your outside leg will often be downhill.
Throughout the trail are several interpretive signs that were erected in May 2017. To see and support more of the work that the New River Land Trust is doing, check them out at newriverlandtrust.org/new-r…
This is a popular park for walking (especially on Fridays through Mondays when Rising Silo Brewery is open across the street), be sure to say "hi" to others out enjoying the park.
These trails can be enjoyed on their own and also connect to the Huckleberry Trail and the Pandapas Pond Trails within the adjacent Jefferson National Forest.
