Each month a group of helpful youth visits the Uptown Spur Trail in Martinsville to do their part and give back to the community. This group of young volunteers is part of the Smith River Trail System's Adopt-A-Trail Program representing the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Blue Ridge. At each visit the youth help to clear debris from the trail, pick up litter and monitor trail usage. They also partner with Gateway Streetscapes to remove weeds from flowerbeds along the trail. This group of youth is doing an amazing job by helping Martinsville Parks & Recreation keep the trail green and beautiful. If you haven't checked the trail out yet, be sure to visit soon. It is located at the corner of Depot and Franklin Streets behind the Historic Courthouse in Uptown Martinsville. The paved trail is 0.6 miles long and will connect to the 4.5 mile long Dick & Willie Passage in 2010.

The Dan River Basin Association's (DRBA) Martinsville-Henry County Rivers and Trails Group consists of local volunteers who are establishing recreational trails and river access points in our section of Southern Virginia. Our mission is to protect, promote, and enhance the natural and historical resources of Martinsville and Henry County through environmental education, recreational activities and tourism, and land conservation and revitalization. Our work has been made possible through the generosity of the Harvest Foundation, which has provided funding for staff and operations in Martinsville and Henry County.
