Rivanna Trail

The weekends in Central Virginia are jam packed with sports and with wonderful places to exercise and spend time with your family. The Rivanna trail is a place that we enjoy.


Rivanna Trail Review

One of my favorite family activities is taking long walks and hikes and being outdoors. There are few things that are as invigorating as being outside in the fresh air and just enjoying nature. If you are looking for a place where you can really connect with nature, you will love Rivanna Trails.

Located in Charlottesville, Virginia; these trails run in sections through the city and they are amazing! Some of the trails run along the Rivanna River and the parks and fields are beautiful. Kids will love skipping rocks in the water and playing in the playground. You can spend a full day exploring all the trails and walking through the forest areas. There are footbridges to cross, hills to climb, you can even cross the creek by hopping across on the rocks. Just be very careful!


Rivanna Trails is a place that you can go and just get away. Free your mind and enjoy some time away from your everyday routine. Both kids and adults will have a ball being outside and being active together while enjoying the different terrains and experiencing nature face to face. It’s peaceful and calm but exciting and exhilarating all at the same time.


There is a section of Rivanna Trails at the very end, where the trail goes toward the Rivanna River. The variety of things you come across in this area makes it a favorite. This part of the trail is a little longer than a mile and a half. Along the way you will walk through sand, climb rocks and see different kinds of wildlife. There are old mill buildings and an old livestock market. This is another perfect area to stop and take lots of pictures.

If you are visiting Charlottesville the Rivanna Trails are a must visit. Whether you are traveling alone, as a couple or a family with kids, this is definitely a place for everyone and anyone who loves nature and being outdoors. If you live in Charlottesville, you should definitely take some time to explore this “hidden gem”.

When my sister lived in Charlottesville, she had trails right behind her house. We got to hike a little one time, but I’d love to do it again!
