Kids in Parks TRACK Trail at Virginia Blue Ridge Railway Trail

Kids in Parks TRACK Trail at the Virginia Blue  Ridge Railway Trail opens June 18 2012. This  Blue Ridge Parkway  Foundation program helps get kids and families "un-plugged", outdoors  and actively engaged in nature, for their health and the health of our  parks. Each TRACK Trail provides a series of self-guided, brochure led  adventures designed to turn an ordinary hike into a fun-filled  adventure. Kids who register their TRACK Trail adventures on the Kids in  Parks website become members of the program's Trail TRACKer Team and earn prizes  designed to make their next adventure more fun. The Kids in Parks TRACK Trail  is a kid friendly adventure along 1.8 miles of the generally level Virginia Blue Ridge Railway Trail. Walk along the rushing mountain waters of the Piney River and observe wildlife in their natural habitat.  The trail is available for hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding from dawn to dusk. Free.
