Neuse River Trail

awesome trail

November, 2020 by merkey

Visiting the area and discovered this trail. What a fantastic trail this is. Scenic, safe, great condition people using it were friendly and it was not crowded. Can’t wait to ride it again when I am back in the area

Walnut Creek Trail

great trail

November, 2020 by merkey

Very nice scenery. Mostly flat with some nice little hills at Johnson Lake. Thoroughly enjoyed the ride! Hope to be in the area again sometime to ride it again.

Symphony Lake Greenway

Nice Trail

November, 2020 by mary.waligora

This is a very nice trail; a loop with a tail. Asphalt throughout and fairly popular. You have to make sure there isn't an event at the amphitheater though; the gates will then be closed and you will have to turn around (you can't go around the gates really either).

Annie Jones Greenway

A nice, short, three-branched trail

November, 2020 by mary.waligora

A nice three-branched trail; mostly paved asphalt, with some concrete northwest of Annie Jones park. There is a nice bridge at one point.

Tobacco Heritage Trail

Tobacco Heritage Trail

November, 2020 by tom.morgan.100

We were skeptical about riding the Tobacco Heritage Trail after reading several reviews. But what a wonderful surprise our ride turned out to be! The 17 mile trail in southeast Virginia is well groomed and maintained with a surface of crushed stone, grass and pavement. The trail goes through canopied forests, tobacco farms and homey small towns. Our YouTube video of the trail is on our channel, Bent on Bike Trails.

Salem Lake Trail

pretty but too crowded

October, 2020 by priscillaqstjohn

Too many people. I like my walks more solitary, especially during a pandemic.

Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway

Great Trail for Kids

September, 2020 by fi34xve6gt

Really great trail, we pulled the Burley on our bikes with our two year old. There are a couple play parks to stop at along the way, plus we ended up at the science center where there were paddle boats, playgrounds, lots of fun for kids. My app said I went about 12 miles, it was all fairly shaded and the lake was beautiful. Highly recommend for hiking with children.

This trail is beautiful and provides connection to multiple awesome trails that provide a more woodsy experience. Palmetto Trail is my personal favorite, but all are very nice! The trails off of this one provide varying challenge levels.

Deep River Rail Trail

nice trail with small climbs

September, 2020 by dwanderson1983

Much of this trail is flat but there are great small climbs around Faith Rock and plenty of beautiful scenes along the River among the way

Tobacco Heritage Trail

Great trail all to myself

September, 2020 by josh.boyer

I've biked this trail twice since August. Love it. The first time I saw three other cyclists, and the second time I saw one. It's all flat or nearly flat. The unpaved part between Brodnax and Lawrenceville varies between nice hardpack and slow sand, but my gravel bike did fine with it, as I'm sure a mountain bike would. The forest on this trail is hardwood trees. It was great to disappear into the woods by myself for a while. I'll be back, even though I live 80 miles away.

Tobacco Heritage Trail

A hidden gem

September, 2020 by jules_phelps

Rode round trip starting in Lawrenceville and it was spectacular! We loved every minute of it. We rode with gravel bikes and the surface was perfect and well maintained. We will definitely be going back soon. With Covid restrictions, there wasn't anywhere to eat lunch, but there were plenty of places on our way back home.
