Market at Grelen Opens New "Duncan Trail"

ORANGE COUNTY, Va. – The Orange County Office of Economic Development and Tourism is delighted to announce a new trail is now open within the Market at Grelen Trail System. The “Duncan Trail” adds 1.5 miles to Grelen’s existing five miles of trails. Additionally, the new, higher "Grelen Overlook" offers breathtaking panoramic views of Grelen Nursery and the Blue Ridge Mountains.

On Friday, July 15, 2022, we invite you to join us at the Market at Grelen for the Duncan Trail Opening Celebration, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The Market at Grelen will host live music, a ribbon cutting ceremony, ice cream, and a limited menu. Visitors are invited to hike to the new “Grelen Overlook” as a part of the celebration.

Julie Perry, Tourism Program Manager noted, “Outdoor Recreation is a significant driver of visitation for Central Virginia. Virginia Tourism statistics show that 13% of visitors list Sports and Outdoors as the main purpose for their trip to Virginia. This new trail expands Orange County’s assets in this important sector, and we are thrilled to celebrate the Grand Opening of the Duncan Trail with team at Grelen”
