James Madison’s Montpelier-Grelen Trail

The 3.9-mile Montpelier-Grelen Trail links Montpelier’s trail system to Grelen Nursery’s trail system over a route that traverses Chicken Mountain. A partnership between Montpelier, Grelen Nursery, and Piedmont Environmental Council, the Montpelier-Grelen Trail was designated a “Virginia Treasure” by the Office of the Governor in 2015 in recognition for its outstanding contribution to conservation, cultural heritage, and public outdoor recreation. Highlights include views of the Blue Ridge and Southwest Mountains, in addition to the food and entertainment offerings provided at Montpelier’s David M. Rubenstein Visitor Center and The Market at Grelen. Please note that the trail is only open from both ends during business hours at Montpelier and The Market at Grelen.
