Plan an Event on the Trail
The Trail crosses through 3 different jurisdictions: Blacksburg, Christiansburg, and Montgomery County. Each of these has its own permit process. A special event you are planning may take place in one or more of these communities. An application must be filed with each jurisdiction that the event passes through, whether it is running, walking, or cycling. The applications are necessary to be sure safety and scheduling are considered for each event.
If you need help figuring out which community your event might take place in, please contact the Recreation Department for any one of the governments and they will be able to help you figure it out.
