NOW OPEN! The McDonald Hollow Trail Network, part of the new Brush Mountain Park, is now open to the public.

We are so grateful to the community, our project partners, our many volunteers, and individual supporters for making this project possible.

Construction of a the final trail planned on the property, the Crosscut trail, is underway. If you'd like to volunteer to help with this hand-built trail, please check with the Poverty Creek Trails Coalition.

With the McDonald Hollow Trails opening, we're looking forward to building trails on Property 2 of the park. Virginia Outdoor Foundation’s Forest CORE Fund awarded us a $32,000 grant to cover engineering costs for the site plan and funding for construction of the main climbing trail on the property.

Download a McDonald Hollow Trail System map, watch videos about the project, and learn more about about the park and trails on our Brush Mountain page. Hope to see you out there!
