The New York Times published an article about Charlottesville's "World Famous Trails" in 1990.

Only problem... we didn't have any trail system at the time.

post installation

  1. Find the location based on the map and photos.
     
  2. Bury the 6ft post at least 2ft underground (should be marked when you pick up the posts).
    2ft 3in is probably ideal.
     
  3. Make sure the post is level!

4. Pack in the dirt tight!

 

Signs will be installed in a few weeks.

 

If there are any questions about the location, give Tommy or Michael a call / facetime and we can help.
