Construction Starting

Sometime in the next few months a contractor will be doing bank stabilization work just east of Difficult Run where the trail was almost washed out last year. Trail users will be diverted to the bridle trail. Also, Dominion Power will be doing some major regrading of a small hill next to the trail close to Northside Park.
