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.
