A visit to a local creamery in Mt. Crawford, Virginia wasn’t just for a tasty ice cream or package of cheese, but also a chance to watch the cows getting MILKED (oops) and see the babies. It’s sad, I’m not gonna lie, but they were so cute and playful—-loved the attention. At the end, I even got to milk a cow a couple of times. Seriously, a bucket list item for as long as I can remember. And it was so easy. What a day!!

Forest Service to Temporarily Close Flagpole Road (FS 85A) for Road Repair Beginning April 22, 2019

Harrisonburg, Va. - April 8, 2019 - The USDA Forest Service will temporarily close a section of Flagpole Road (FSR 85A) located on George Washington and Jefferson National Forest in Rockingham County, Va. beginning April 22, 2019 to repair storm damage. The road will be closed beginning at the intersection of Briery Branch Road (SR 924) and extending 3.85 miles beyond this intersection. The road will reopen when repairs are complete which is expected to be in approximately nine weeks.

This repair work is needed to address damage from repeated wet weather events that caused significant damage to the road infrastructure. The roadwork will improve drainage and road safety. While repairs are underway, portions of the road will be unpassable. Also, heavy equipment will be traveling into and along the road making the road unsafe for visitor traffic.

“I recognize this is a popular road and the temporary closure will be an inconvenience to our forest users”, Acting North River District Ranger Alex Faught said, “However, visitor and worker safety is my primary concern at this time. I look forward to the road being open again and serving as a source of enjoyment for Forest visitors.”

For more information about the road please contact the North River Ranger District office at 540-432-0187.

The history lives on for the original Albert Long Park at the new Albert Long Fields at the Rockingham Park at the Crossroads!We are honored to announce our baseball and softball complex as Albert Long Fields!

The original Albert Long Park was located near the intersection of Reservoir Street and Stone Spring Road. The property was donated by the Albert Long family in 1971 and encompassed 5.945 acres for the purpose of recreation.

On April 26, 2013 the Rockingham County Board of Supervisors authorized an exchange agreement with Indian Trail Farm, LLC. to swap the current Albert Long Park for approximately 72 acres of land located along Spotswood Trail. The Board’s intent was to develop the 65 acres to the rear of the site as a park, replacing the current Albert Long Park location. When the current property was taken out of service, the Board’s commitment to the Long family was to replace the recreational land utilizing much of
the proceeds from the redevelopment of the current property to help fund construction of Rockingham Park at the Crossroads.
