Ivy Creek Natural Area Trails is a 4 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Charlottesville, Virginia that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and nature trips and is accessible year-round.
Well maintained paths. Great for an hour or so walk on fairly easy trails.
Drove 20 minutes to get here only to find dogs were not allowed. What a bummer!
Excellent. Not many people!
This trail was well maintained and well marked. I enjoyed a summer morning hike on this trail. The scenery was good. Traffic was light and plenty of parking space.
I really enjoyed it. I went in early Spring when the trees were still barren and was surprised at the amount of wildlife I saw from birds of prey to wild turkeys and plenty of deer.
Well maintained and marked trails over light rolling hills give good exercise without being too mentally or physically taxing. Not too crowded the day after Thanksgiving. The scenery is varied, there are woods slopes, fields and river and marshlands to see.
