The Rivanna Trail, Charlottesville & Albemarle County, Virginia



Saturday, Sep 23, 2023
Sunday, Sep 24, 2023

This year’s Loop de Ville Fest is a full weekend of guided group hikes, walks, runs, and bike rides – plus a free concert and the inaugural Lightning Trail Talks. 

This is your chance to experience a guided and supported hike, run, or bike on the ~20 mile loop of trails that encircle our city.

Only wanna do a mile or two? No problem! Join for what you want and nothing more. Some folks are even doing team relays! All events are free and you do not have to do a trail event to enjoy the concert.

And, this year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Charlottesville Area Mountain Bike Club (CAMBC) – the best friends the RT could have!

calling all volunteers

Volunteers are crucial for the success of Loop de Ville Fest. Setup, cheer and support at an aid station, lead a ride/bike/run, take photos… there’s a job for everyone! Learn more and sign up below.
