Blue Ridge School is a Design + Build project in St. George, VA for the Blue Ridge School for Boys. Featuring beginner, intermediate, and expert singletrack, the Blue Ridge School campus features over 15 miles of mountain biking and hiking trails. The trails traverse various terrain while connecting riders to the flora and fauna of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Some trails offer overlooks, while others pass historical sites.
From Blue Ridge School:
“The location of the School in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains provides so many opportunities to be out in nature — to just unwind, as part of a sports team or in a formal outdoor learning program. Today’s children grow up so ‘wired’ to their electronics and miss out on the physical and mental benefits of connecting with nature. Scientific studies have shown the link between time spent outdoors and improved short term memory, better concentration, increased creativity, reduced mental fatigue and many other benefits to the brain and the body. Improving the trail system will allow greater opportunity for the students, staff, faculty and community members to get OUTSIDE and explore with the added benefits of increased physical and mental health.”
