High Point Area Restoration
The High Point overlook area and the trails leading to that area are closed for restoration. The closure took effect on January 15, 2015. The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation’s Division of Natural Heritage designed a restoration plan that began on May 1, 2015. The restoration area is now being monitored and updates on its progress will be posted periodically. Questions about the High Point project may be directed to Gary Fleming, vegetation ecologist with DCR, Gary.firstname.lastname@example.org (804) 786-9122. More details can be found here.
