Located on a bluff near the Rivanna Reservoir just off Earlysville Road, the Squirrel Ridge subdivision comprises 24 houses mostly built in the early 1980s on two curvy cul-de-sacs: Squirrel Path and Pine Cone Circle. Some of the houses perch atop hills while others rest under foliage of towering trees. Paths – for squirrels and people – run beneath the backyard canopy and around streams and ponds. On a nice day, residents work in their gardens or stroll around the hills.
