Observatory Hill Professional Review and Guide

"What a bunch of lucky folks those UVA students. Those interested in burning off some post-class stress from the main University grounds. And this is no ordinary terrain like you might expect from a downtown park, with a few zig-zag trails through generally flat terrain and soccer fields.

O-Hill throws the "mountain" in mountain biking and keeps it coming for a whole afternoon of power riding and technical skill work. sharp climbs; long, fast descents; rocky mine fields; and some smooth runs all combine at O-Hill to create an atmosphere of real mountain bike adrenaline -- and it's all right next to campus.

Trail Surface: Narrow technical singletrack in a very hilly, wooded environment."
