The VNPS Upper James River chapter has created a self-guided spring plant tour at Brushy Hills. We have planted flags along a loop of approximately two miles, with most flags concentrated in the first half. The Tour Guide describes each flagged plant and includes a color photo. At the parking lot, there is a small bridge over a small creek to the left of the kiosk. Look for the pink flags.

For directions to Brushy Hills and a trail map, visit Friends of Brushy Hills.  You’ll also find a large map on the kiosk at the parking lot.

PLEASE DO NOT PICK THE FLOWERS! Parents, you might explain to your kids that these flowers weren’t planted here by people; their seeds came from a mother plant, they grew up here, and this is their home. Thank you!

If you have any questions about Brushy Hills itself, please contact friendsofbrushyhills@gmail.com.

Questions about plants or the Native Plant Society can be directed to Peggy at cobbking@rockbridge.net or Jan at janhuntersmith@gmail.com.

Unlike on the Chessie Trail or the W&L back-campus trails, you will see few non-native invasive plants here, thanks to the hard work of Friends of Brushy Hills project chair David Rosher and many volunteers.
