Nelson County just joined a unique group of other trails across the country. “Kids in Parks provides a network of family friendly trails, called TRACK Trails, that connect various public lands in an attempt to get kids “un-plugged”, 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,” according to the Kids In Parks website.

This past Monday morning June 18, 2012, an official ribbon cutting was held in Piney River where the Nelson section of the trail was officially opened at the Virginia Blue Ridge Railway Trail
