At least two addition miles are now open on the northern end. At about the 2.5 mile point going south, the grade begins to rise and the valley walls close in as you ascend into a gap. The trail remains plenty wide and there are some tables and stone benches nearing the 3.5 to 4.5 marks. I very much enjoyed the walk yesterday. Ps. Zero cell reception for most of the way on this end of the trail.
Entered from Mendota trailhead. Three new bridges, but trail ended at 2 miles. Gate sign said trail ends. Rough trail but doable.
I biked the entire trail today; both ways. One has to know a little bit about the history of the area to really appreciate this trail, but even if you are not a history buff, the scenery and farmland is well worth the ride. My only complaint is that there is no history of the old railroad itself to be found anywhere along the trail. There really needs to be a plaque/marker at each end of the trail telling they history of the old railroad grade. I saw
It is fairly easy but also very nice. Goes right along with the river.
Really enjoyed this easy pastoral ride down shady tree covered trail. Parked at wilderness trail state park visitor center with welcoming staff, clean restrooms, and picnic tables in shade to relax after. Big bonus was seeing bisons and their 4 week old baby. Highly recommend.
First time riding this trail, made a couple of wrong turns, but found our way by asking people that were walking, nice trail except for the goose crap...it was everywhere
There was a significant amount of buckled asphalt on this trail. Thus the reason for the low rating. The water was pretty at some points and nasty at others. Again, low rating. It was not an enjoyable trail for us as we desire more scenic routes. We parked and traveled toward The Jonesborough trailhead. When at the end, the trail was closed at the bridge.
Not so great if you are expecting a bike trail that’s scenic. This runs the length of a major road. 3 lanes most of the ride. It was more of riding down a sidewalk.
Stopped at Bristol end and was under construction. Sign indicated we could go to Benhams and ride from that end. We drove to that end, rode the trail toward Bristol and in about a mile came to a gate with signs indicating trail was closed. Should take down the sign at Bristol Trail head and indicated it is closed instead.
We road the southern section from Belhems to Bristol VA. Just over 5 miles one way with 2 new trestle bridges near Belhems - one of each side. Steady climb up to the top midway then streaky climbs down to trailhead. One small section was added to the side of the road by cutting into the hill and it is a bit narrow. I would ride back up on the road, myself. Outside that the trail is wide and relatively smooth. Some grass. Glad the other sections were mainly froze. Today.
First trail run of my NC citizenship and it was awesome. All paved, beautiful day and beautiful scenery. Will definitely be back. All uphill followed by all downhill. 7.1 round trip.
The Wilma Dykeman Greenway is a sweet, new, multi-use trail. There are walkers, runners, skaters, dogs, and families along the paved walking path.
The dedicated two-way bike lanes make riding this a breeze. There is room for faster bikers to pass and no worry about cars as the bike lanes are protected by a low concrete barrier.
This trail takes you all along the River Arts District, where you can stop for coffee, food, galleries, and more. There are crossings, which should definitely be used because the road is pretty busy.
There are plenty of places to park for free, either along the route on the street or in the lots along Riverside Drive/Lyman St. Parking closest to Smoky Park Supper Club or White Duck Taco will give you the entire expanse of the trail rather than starting in the middle. Take the greenway all the way to Amboy Rd, where you can continue to go to French Broad River Park and the Greenway through Carrier Park, all the way out to Hominy Creek River Park.
*I've also rollerbladed on the Wilma Dykeman Greenway. There can be debris (branches, stones, etc.) in the bike lanes and the walking path, making it slightly treacherous for blading.
