We love this ride.
Nice trail..wear bug spray!!
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.
Really enjoyed this trail and the scenery. Bringing our twin daughters to ride next time.
The trail has been extended a little and is now four (4) miles round trip. It’s pretty level so it’s easy to walk, and wide enough for people to pass each other going the opposite direction. It runs along the South Fork River and has a couple of small dams along the way for possible photo opportunities. Definitely relaxing as the trail is mostly surrounded by trees and nature, and there are several benches along the trail if you need to take a break. It is a natural trail, but has some gravel in a few spots to prevent it from washing out. I’ve seen some people riding mountain bikes on it too. I would definitely recommend this trail to get some exercise, walk your dog (best friend), and enjoy nature.
Their is a wide concrete side walk to and down Bailey Road to the high school. At that point there is a cross walk that connects to the Greenway to Davidson and Antiquity.
This is a nice ride through the woods. I rode it mid day on a week day lots of walkers .
The new extension from Westmoreland to Magnolia Ridge (By Publix) is a great addition.
Beautiful and good terrain for running
This wonderful trail now begins at the Andrew Polk State Historic Site.
Smooth as heck. Excellent scenery. Decent mix of trees and open space. Some slight hills, good mix of winding roads and straight away. Everyone will enjoy. Easy to navigate as posts state which turns are exits! NC best!
We attempted to go along the trail to enjoy the bridge shown in the pictures but it was very apparent once arriving that it no longer exists. Not sure at which point it was dismantled but be prepared not to be able to go from one end of the trail to the other.
