Kids in Parks

Begin a lifetime of adventure and start TRACKING your TRACK TRAIL adventures in your online nature journal today.
Nelson County is pleased to have 2 TRACK TRAILs

The Virginia Blue Ridge Railway Trail in Piney River and the Rockfish Valley Loop Trail in Nellysford
Kids in Parks provides a network of family friendly trails, called TRACK TRAILS, that connect various public lands in an attempt to get kids “unplugged”, outdoors and reconnected with nature for their health and the health of our parks. Each TRACK TRAIL has a series of brochure-led self-guided adventures designed to turn an ordinary hike into a fun-filled adventure. Furthermore, kids earn PRIZES for TRACKing their TRACK TRAIL adventures in their online nature journal website.

Find the brochures in the kiosks at the main trailheads of each trail or online at www.kidsinparks.com to find more information.

The Kids in Parks program is an initiative of the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation, the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Blue Cross/Blue Shield of North Carolina
