        One of the easiest trails in the area is the Chessie Nature Trail. At a length of 7 – 11 miles depending on the researcher is Chessie Trail. A walking trail located between Lexington and Buena Vista, along the former Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad right of way. Buena Vista (/ ˌ b juː n ə ˈ v ɪ s t ə / BEW-nə-VIS-tə) is an independent city located in the Blue Ridge Mountains region of Virginia in the United States. As of the census, the population was 6, The Bureau of Economic Analysis combines the independent cities of Buena Vista and Lexington, along with surrounding Rockbridge County, for statistical purposes.

        For a structured and educational experience, explore the trails at Boxerwood Garden. Chessie Nature Trail follows the old railroad line from Lexington to Buena Vista; it goes through farmland and follows the Maury River, creating a homey feeling, like playing in your back yard in the fall — if your back yard included a seven-mile trail. For outdoor inspiration before one of these gatherings, slip down to the Woods Creek Trail, which runs the length of W&L and VMI, or the Chessie Nature Trail along the Maury River. For golfers, head to the stunning Vista Links in Buena Vista, where the Blue Ridge Mountains are your backdrop.
