You can earn benefits for your volunteer work. For example, you can earn free passes, free camping, and free cabin use at all Virginia State Parks. The ultimate benefit you can earn is a lifetime entrance pass to all Virginia State Parks along with the satisfaction of contributing to a great local resource.

Centered between Cumberland, Nottoway and Prince Edward Counties, High Bridge Trail State Park is one of the newest additions to the family of Virginia State Parks. Opening in 2006, High Bridge Trail State Park boasts its very own historic landmark, a 2,400 feet long, 125 feet high rail road bridge rebuilt in 1914 which was donated by the Norfolk Southern railroad line. The bridge opened in 2012 which completed the 30 miles of trails now open to the public for hiking, biking, and horseback riding.

As the park continues to be developed, new opportunities will arise to support the park in a variety of ways. One of those ways is through the Friends group. Friends groups are non-profit organizations that are formed to support a local park through volunteerism, advocacy and fundraising efforts. Anyone interested in becoming involved with Friends of High Bridge Trail State Park, please contact the Friends and ask for information on joining, annual membership, dues or donations. Dues and Donations are Tax Deductible.
