Princeville Heritage Trail

I should have paid attention to the word “grassy.” My bad.

October, 2022 by hswalker39

The trail is entirely grass, and I found it rough even with my fat tires. I definitely don’t have the soul of a mountain biker, so someone more adventurous (and younger) might be fine. The area itself has a lot of history, unfortunately, the Museum/Visitor Center was closed and appeared to be undergoing renovations. Not sorry we went. Just would have wished for a better trail. The trail signs were so faded as to be unreadable, which gives a feeling of neglect. ¿

October road trip

Mostly flat, pleasantly curvy short ride while staying a night at a River and Twine little house. Short and sweet. There is clearly work in progress to extend the trail.

The trail was nice, comfortable & picturis.The East end of trail starts uphill so plenty of coasting time to west end.

pretty!

Crosses a few busy streets around Greenville but most of it is gorgeous. A little sandy for a road bike though

Tar River Trail

A short, pleasant Trail

May, 2016 by neschultz3

Short trail, but came from the Centennial Sportsplex so that added some mileage. I road a hybrid without a cyclometer. Great trail if your kids are tied up at the park. You can loop around to beef it out if you'd like. Trail connects up a lot of neighbor parks. I recommend. Kiosks all over that show trail map. Could still have been better marked.

Great Trail

Surprised to see Rocky Mount with such a nice trail.

Princeville Heritage Trail

Very nice trail

December, 2015 by moravia

It's on high ground, so the recent rains did not cause any problems. The trail itself is about Jeep width, but it's in a very wide clear path, so it feels very open. There are views of the river, swamps, forest, and train tracks on the ~2 mile trail. (Yes, that's right, it's not really 3 miles. From the museum to the trail, to one end then the other, and back to the museum was 4.53 miles.)

With the unseasonably warm weather recently, the trail could have used a mow. I was almost wishing to be in jeans instead of shorts, but it didn't quite cross the threshold where I wanted to abandon the walk.

Pleasant ride

I was surprised to find out Rocky Mount has this nice trail. There are a few bumpy places and a few hills, but nothing I couldn't handle.
