The Chessie Nature Trail is a seven-mile, year-round public access walking trail between Lexington and Buena Vista, located along the former Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad right of way.
VMI occasionally uses the trail for cadet marches. The trail remains open to the public during these times. Local community groups are encouraged to hold walks or meetings on the trail. Please contact the VMI Physical Plant at (540) 464-7358 to coordinate your event.
