The Mint Springs Valley Park TRACK Trail adventures can be used on any of the park’s trails. There are over five miles of trails in the park, from easy trails along the lake to more strenuous trails up in the mountains. Please check a park map before venturing out on to any trail.
Mint Springs Valley Park is a 520 acre park in Albemarle County. Enjoy miles of trails, swimming and fishing in the lakes, playing in the playground and enjoying a picnic at one of the many picnic shelters. The lakes of Mint Springs once provided drinking water for the Town of Crozet. Today they serve as habitat to several species of fish, including largemouth bass, black crappie, native bluegill, bream, and stocked rainbow trout. Buck Elbow Mountain rises over 2,000 feet above Mint Springs Valley. Along the trails in the park, poplar, maple, and oak trees are common.
