Very bumpy trail and Zi don’t recommend for biking as it has stairs to climb on the South end. Great walking path, beautiful scenery.

Salem Lake Trail

Fabulous Trail

September, 2022 by juliehdockery

This is great 7 mile loop around beautiful Salem Lake. The trail is wide and generally well maintained. It’s crushed gravel or hard packed dirt and has a couple of spots where it rutted out a bit. But I ride it often and so do many other cyclists, runners, walkers, moms pushing strollers. So it’s not really a problem. Lots of wildlife to be seen; herons, deer, turtles. Drinking water is available at a couple of points on the loop and there are plenty of benches if you need a rest. Don’t forget to take your camera on this one!!

Muddy Creek Greenway

Accessible to mobility scooter users

This is superb for those needing mobility assistance. Looking for new trails that we, lifetime hikers, can use now we are in our seventies and one of us is mobility challenged, has become a new pastime. Muddy Creek is excellent!

Antiquity Greenway

easy quiet walk

August, 2022 by jimrobin1205

It was a very nice, easy walk. Asphalt path was clean, well kept and wide following a power line right of way. Slight decline one way and incline on the way back. Not strenuous though but I did break a slight sweat. No shade at all. We walked on a cloudy afternoon 5:00 pm 83 degrees and it was nice. If it had been sunny and hotter it would not have been enjoyable at all. Some bug spray would have been good. Had some knats. Saw some bunnies and birds.

New River Trail State Park

Best Rail Trail in the Area

July, 2022 by nmarzoli04

This might be heresy from someone who lives in Abingdon near the Creeper Trail terminus, but this is my favorite rail trail in the area. Yesterday my wife and I rode from Foster Falls south all the way to Fries Junction, and then on to Fries and back. Total was about 45 miles. This trail has beautiful scenery, is well maintained, has a pretty level grade, and doesn't seem to have crowds. The only "challenging" stretch was near the dams, as the incline increased a bit and the trail became a bit rockier, but other than that it was smooth gravel all the way. Don't miss this SW VA gem! I can't wait to go back and do the other half to Pulaski and the final 12 miles to Galax.

My wife and I rode 37 miles south from River's Edge Trail campground, which by the way is a wonderful spot to stay. The natural beauty is soothing to the soul. The trail is a pleasure to ride.

Dick & Willie Passage Rail Trail

Nicely maintained paved trail with very little traffic. One of the nicest we've been on. Long 3 mile steady uphill grade but it was really worth it. We also rode the Silver Bells trail and the spur trail toward uptown. Well worth the effort!

A Little Rough

July, 2022 by dcsnyder

Galax to Fries Junction to Fries and back. It was about 7 miles above Galax that was a bit rougher with about 1/2 inch pebbles in some areas and rocks sticking out of the ground. Been on many gravel trails and this was one of the worst surfaces I've been on. The section to Fries was nice with newer gravel. The ranger said they have materials just not staff to do it . Great scenery and could be an elite trail if they can fix the surface

This was such a pleasant ride! We started at the north end at the Xaloy Way parking lot. We rode south for 8-10 miles and loved the shady, well maintained path. We saw 2 does and a red fox along the way. The ride back was equally pleasant.

New River Trail State Park

A Legendary Trail

June, 2022 by trailsforall

I rode a central portion this trail with my 17 year-old daughter on Saturday May 28, 2022 on a beautiful sunny day with temperatures in the low 80s. We started at MP 24 near Foster Falls and rode to MP 37 past the dam, then doubled back. We made SEVERAL stops to enjoy the scenery and read the signs. I had been meaning to do the trail for many years, and was finally able to combine it into a 4-day long-weekend with three separate rail trail adventures across Virginia. The New River Trail benefits greatly from its status as a Virginia State Park. There are multiple access points with parking, plentiful water and restrooms, and a wide variety of user groups. I had never seen so many horseback riders as I did on this day! The gravel trail is wide and in excellent condition given the many users. We had a wet spring in April and May, and the trail was wet in places with mud - but in no place was it washed out. For the 13 route miles that we saw there was near-constant tree coverage, which kept us generally shaded and cool. Trail users were friendly and courteous. I will definitely come back to this trail to see the remainder - and perhaps do some bikepacking.
