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.

    I don’t seem to be able to join any events or rsvp ? Maybe not supported from my phone ?

    Ashland Town Hall is a construction site and the parking area is not accessible. I suggest the meeting location be moved to the Henry Clay Elementary School, 310 S. James St., just two blocks west of Town Hall…

      Thanks MB! I changed it. Also keeping an eye on the weather forecast for Sunday. Rain likely but that could change.
