Henry Clay Elementary School

This is part of a limited run of local fall foliage walks right here in RVA!

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.  This walk will highlight some of the aesthetic and historic parts of Ashland, as well as some of Ashland’s trails and parks.

This is a great opportunity for beginning hikers, amateur photographers, and new members to come out and meet the group!

Optional post-hike coffee and/or lunch in downtown Ashland if there is interest.
