Ashland Town Hall Parking Lot

Ashland (a.k.a. the “Center of the Universe”) is named after the Lexington, Kentucky estate of Hanover County native and statesman Henry Clay. The area known as The Slashes, that later became Ashland, was developed by the Richmond, Fredericksburg, and Potomac Railroad as a mineral springs resort in the 1840s.  The tracks run through the center of town, and the area near the Ashland train station is a popular train-watching site for railfans. Ashland is served by AMTRAK at its historic train station/visitors’ center which was constructed in 1920.

This walk will highlight some of the aesthetic and historic parts of Ashland, as well as some of Ashland’s trails and parks.  Optional coffee and/or lunch at Trackside Grill after the hike if there is interest.
