Friends of the Huckleberry Trail (Civic)


As a part of an update of Blacksburg's comprehensive plan, a committee was formed in 1991 in cooperation with Montgomery County and the Town of Christiansburg. It became a non-profit corporation, the Friends of the Huckleberry, Inc. The guidance and financial help of the Friends of the Huckleberry has helped extend the Trail to the Town of Christiansburg Recreation Center. With its goal of promoting and expanding the Huckleberry Trail, Friends has helped raise over $3 million for the expansion of the trail through federal and state grants, funds from the local governments, and from corporations and private citizens. Corporate sponsors of the trail include Corning, Montgomery Regional Hospital, the National Bank of Blacksburg, East Coasters Cycling & Fitness, the Hethwood Foundation, HHHunt, and many others.

Friends of the Huckleberry is currently working with the local governments to extend the Trail south to the Christiansburg High School, into downtown Christiansburg and north to the Heritage Park and the Jefferson National Forest in Blacksburg. It is anticipated that these extensions will be completed in the next couple of years as funds become available. Friends of the Huckleberry will continue to work on improving amenities and landscaping along the trail, even after it accomplishes it’s mission of connecting Downtown Christiansburg and the Jefferson National Forest.
