Saunders-Monticello Trail and Kemper Park

The Saunders-Monticello Trail stretches 2 miles along the south side of Route 53 and across Saunders Bridge to Monticello's new Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center and Smith Education Center. The trail has a gentle grade and is open to pedestrians, cyclists, and to those in wheelchairs. Parking is available at the base of Route 53 and on Route 20 near the intersection of Route 53. At the base of the Parkway, Kemper Park includes an arboretum of native trees and shrubs, Carter Overlook, a two-acre pond, and a small trailhead parking lot. Trail and park users are asked to respect the following rules: The Saunders-Monticello Trail and Kemper Park are open all year, sunrise to sunset. Please stay to the right on trails. Bicycles must observe a 10 mph speed limit and yield to pedestrians at all times. Cyclists should pass pedestrians on the left and proceed with caution. Boardwalk sections of the trail will be closed to bicycles in wet conditions. Dogs are welcome in Kemper Park only and must be kept on a leash. Call the Thomas Jefferson Foundation at (434) 984-9877 for more information.
