During the pandemic, people engaged in outdoor recreation in record numbers, and communities realized the public health and quality of life benefits of multipurpose trails. Friends of the Huckleberry is busy working with other regional non-profits exploring opportunities to expand the Huckleberry Trail. Your donation will help fund land and right-of-way acquisition and design and construction of new trails as well as provide information about the trail and user resources for people to explore the trail.
The Huckleberry Trail is a paved trail system that extends almost 15 miles, through rolling terrain and passing through Blacksburg, Virginia Tech, Montgomery County and Christiansburg. The trail offers a way for pedestrians, bicyclists, and other users to reach a number of recreational, cultural and community attractions in the area. The Huckleberry Trail is connected to other paved and natural surface trails like the Coal Mining Heritage Park, McDonald Hollow Trail Network, Gateway Trail, Poverty Creek Trail System as well as other local systems. The connected paved and natural surface trail system extends over 60 miles in length.
