Crawley Preserve

1.76 miles   2 mph    for the first time since my accident, i picked a trail only because i’d never been on it before. that, plus it was short. but there was no concern about flatness or accessibility! i felt ecstatic to be on a new trail again for the first time in three months. and this is a very pretty property. worth visiting. but it’s very small.

as you can see, it’s very leaf-covered, which hides lots of roots, rocks, stumps, and holes. so i had to take it fairly slowly. but there’s a decent little climb uphill from the parking lot, and it felt good to exert myself a bit. of course, coming back downhill on the ankle was more challenging, but overall i feel pretty good.

good signage

the signage on this property is outstanding and the trails are clearly blazed and neat. this preserve is owned by the richmond land trust, and it is well-maintained.

toward the end of the blue trail, you pass through a beech grove. the leaves are just dazzling this time of year. i have added this hike to the hikefinder, and created a trail map.
