Rivanna Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Rivanna Trail is a valued recreational resource for Charlottesville residents, but it’s somewhat doubtful that many make the complete 20-mile loop. Fortunately, the ring trail passes numerous access points as it wends its way through parks and suburbs, so it’s easy to customize an end-to-end or out-and-back that suits you. I've recommended three such hikes here.
More than a decade ago, Charlottesville hikers founded the Rivanna Trails Foundation with an ambitious goal: to encircle the city with a footpath 20 miles long. They chose primarily riparian corridors—along the Rivanna River and Moore’s and Meadow creeks—although on the city’s western edge, the trail runs nearer roadways."
