In preparation for the holiday 5k and the removal of a down tree part of the trail was closed on the day I went. I was so able to do just over half the trail and then on the way back did two of the...More
I've been walking and running the trail at Monticello for 18 years -- the first time I had a toddler in a stroller and an infant in a Baby Bjorn. My favorite thing is to park in the outer lot and walk the two miles...More
My parents and I met up here for a hike. The trails are very well maintained, but not very well marked. We were not sure where we were a lot of the time, but it was so fun anyway! One of the trails takes you...More
Hotel staff suggested I run here. I did not know quite where to start, and that was a problem. It took me about three miles of running to find the appropriate place... and in that time, I *at great peril* ran on Thomas Jefferson Parkway,...More
This wonderful boardwork accommodates strollers, bikers, hikers and walkers.. It can get congested at certain times and parking can tricky but it is worth the beautiful, pristine forest views. Great litlle views of Charlottesville and Monticello sits on the top of the mountain. There is...More
There is abundant shade which helps keep you cool. It’s a great hike with a wide paved walkway and some nice some nice views. Dogs aren’t allowed when you’re up near Monticello and the trail is not a loop, so you go up hill one...More
This trail is mostly paved with some bridges and some gravel. It will take you all the way to the main visitor center for Monticello. There is a little playroom for younger children at the visitor center. It is is a big hill, but not...More

I haven't been there today, but you can park either in the small parking lot near the entrance, or around the corner off of Route 20 (Dairy Barn Rd). The normal trail "paved" should be good. The upper trails are a bit muddy.

Yes, there are places to rent bikes to ride on the Saunders-Monticello Trail. Close places to the trail are Blue Ridge Cyclery and Community Bikes. If you do not want to ride from the bike rental place to the trailhead so you can then ride up the trail, you ought to be able to engage an Uber XL to carry you and bike to trailhead. Be sure to check the Saunders-Monticello Trail website to make sure the trail is clear. A fallen tree destroyed part of the trail boardwalk earlier in the summer; it should be repaired by now.
