I really enjoy the Huckleberry Trail and was excited to stumble upon this little Heritage Park. I enjoyed reading the signs and looking around, but I wasn't thrilled but it. There could be more and better signage or maybe something interactive to improve the park.

The trail is a nice system that goes from Blacksburg to Christiansburg. It is about 5 miles long, and paved the whole length.

Title says everything. It is on the Huckleberry trail. You can stop by and you will have seen it all in a glimpse of an eye. Or did I just miss something?
