“An easy enjoyable walk through the woods”

Saunders-Monticello Trail
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Very nicely maintained, this roughly 3.5 mile hike is for almost everyone. Mostly boardwalked, the slight uphill climb was easy and scenic. Lots of native shrubs and trees are clearly marked. I can't wait to take this hike again in the spring and see the plants into the next season.

Our B&B is about 3 miles from the Saunders Trail. We often have guests who want to exercise before or after breakfast and send them here. It is sculptured and gradual in the climb as it is designed to be used even by those in wheelchairs.

Our country roads are a bit narrow for joggers and we don't have any bike paths so this is the best place in town to jog hands down!

If you just need some time to yourself and want to get out and enjoy nature for a gentle stroll, this is a great place to do that,

This in one of my favorite spots in all of Charlottesville. The way the walkway was constructed to avoid damage to existing trees, the views, and the beautiful destination at the top of the path make it a very pleasurable experience. If you are in Cville or visiting, you should stop for a visit.

This was a wonderful trail -- 2 miles up and 2 miles back. Friendly people, not too steep and a great destination. Highly recommend it.
