Happy Trails in Lochlyn Hill

By January 22, 2018 Lochlyn Hill, Trails No Comments

It’s easy to get away from it all when you live at Lochlyn Hill. Here, an extensive system of Charlottesville’s most scenic trails begins in your backyard. And the city’s biggest and best park is right next door.

Discover what it’s like to live in a place that has a built-in secret weapon in the battle to get kids to look up from their screens and put down their phones. It’s easy to be inspired to get outside and enjoy the natural world when the Rivanna Trail is just a stone’s throw away. Direct access to this network of paved and unpaved paths, winding through lush green woods and past streams and creeks, puts 20 miles of outdoor exploration at your family’s fingertips.

All 280 acres of Pen Park are also just a few steps way, and the options are plentiful. Play tennis on one of Pen Park’s eight courts or squeeze in a round at the Meadowcreek Golf Course, named one of the “Best Places to Play” by Golf Digest. Or take advantage of your almost instant access to the park’s playground, volleyball court, baseball field or nature trail.

Another biking and walking trail that’s accessible from Lochlyn Hill crosses over Meadow Creek and leads to great places like Riverview Park, the Downtown Mall, John Warner Parkway Trails and Charlottesville High School.

Forget driving, traffic and parking hassles. Your great escape awaits at Lochlyn Hill—every day of the week.
