Ragged Mountain Natural Area
Located right in town, this natural area has a system of trails around a reservoir. Pretty scenery and good hiking, short drive to access.
“Scenically shadowed by the Blue Ridge Mountains, this 219-acre preserve bordering the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir is a mix of upland woods, pine stands, open fields, streams, and two miles of shoreline. Its rolling hills and diverse habitats make the Ivy Creek Natural Area an ideal site to learn about the rich natural history characteristic of Central Virginia and has made Ivy Creek a favorite destination for visitors and community alike looking for a peaceful walk in the woods.”

“Real-deal, whole-animal butcher dudes. When you're in the mood to grill, go here! Amazing grass-fed steaks, house-made sausages and the most helpful, knowledgeable butchers around. On weekends, they also make the most insane ham biscuits with hot sauce and honey. Also a great place any day for great sandwiches. ”
