Description

This section routes around a network of trails on the UVA campus called O'Hill, or Observatory Hill. This is a rooty stretch of singletrack that has some wooden bridges that cross small streams. There are many spurs off this trail that you can take up to the observatory and run some really steep trails. This is a popular trail system for the UVA students.
