The Friends of High Bridge Trail State Park (FoHBTSP) actively participates in the mission of High Bridge Trail State Park. That mission is to conserve the natural, cultural, scenic, and recreational resources of the park, as well as to provide a variety of recreational and educational opportunities and to promote environmental stewardship. You too can become involved.
You can earn benefits for your volunteer work. For example, you can earn free passes, free camping, and free cabin use at all Virginia State Parks. The ultimate benefit you can earn is a lifetime entrance pass to all Virginia State Parks along with the satisfaction of contributing to a great local resource.
Centered between Cumberland, Nottoway and Prince Edward Counties, High Bridge Trail State Park is one of the newest additions to the family of Virginia State Parks. Opening in 2006, High Bridge Trail State Park boasts it’s very own immense landmark, a 2,400 feet long, 160 feet high tall rail road bridge rebuilt in 1914 which was donated by the Norfolk Southern railroad line. The bridge is set to open for a public trail in late 2011. 20 of the planned 30 miles of trails are now open to the public and are multi use to hikers, cyclist and horseback riders.
As the park continues to be developed new opportunities will continue to arise to support the park in a variety of ways. One of those ways is through the Friends group. Friends groups are non-profit organizations that are formed to support a local park through volunteerism, advocacy and fundraising efforts. Anyone interested in becoming involved with Friends of High Bridge Trail State Park, please call or e-mail and ask for information on joining and annual membership dues/donations. Dues and Donations are Tax Deductible.
