Escaping to the country from Charlottesville is easy, so if you’re craving a pastoral run through rolling farmland and shady woods with killer views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, look no further than Dick Woods Road near Crozet, where you can run up to 7.5 miles in one direction. The gravel sprawl of Dick Woods is something of a legend among Charlottesville area runners. It’s a tough training ground where you can rack up both mileage and hills, but with views like these, you’ll never want to quit!

The area is about 15 miles west of downtown.
