One of the many great things about living in Glenmore is that there are so many ways to be physically active throughout the year.

One particular gem is the ring of trails that surrounds the neighborhood. Covering more than 1,300 acres, the Glenmore country trails offer something for everyone.

Feel like walking along a river? Then the Rivanna Trail is perfect for you.

Looking for some solitude in the woods? Try the wooded beauty of the Carroll Creek trail.

Live on the eastern edge of the community? Then step out your front door and onto the Camp Branch Trail.

Want to go on a quick walk with your children? Give the Bluebird Trail a try.

Want to see it all from horseback? Then you should definitely explore the trails around the Equestrian Center.

Even though the weather is cold, there’s no reason not to bundle up and head outside today!
