Welcome to the Orlean Community Trail System

Who We Are

The Orlean Community Trail System (“OCTS”) is a non-profit grassroots community-based organization of neighbors who seek to create a network of trails for riders and hikers in the Orlean, VA area. OCTS works with landowners to plan new and restore existing trails. In this way, OCTS is enhancing a sense of community in an area that has, over the years, lost some of that “neighborhood feel”. OCTS members abide by OCTS trail etiquette

We also have a social side and sponsor several large, community events throughout the year, which build community spirit.


Where Are The Trails?

Trails are or can be in your own backyard! We currently have more than 300 participating landowners and more than 20 miles of trails. Trails are developed based on the concept of micro-neighborhoods. The majority of users are immediate neighbors, familiar with each other and the specific requirements of the property landowners. Landowners exercise their own discretion in permitting various types of passage (e.g. horses, hikers, motorized vehicles).

“No man is an island”-- Not all trails are currently contiguous. Therefore, it is important to recognize that regardless of property size or location, each landowner serves as a stepping stone to expand to other properties and connect the trail system.

Talk to your neighbors about existing trails or creating trails…the OCTS can help you!
