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.

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.

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.

Potts Valley Rail Trail

good easy hike

May, 2022 by l.gerryvonville

Hiked alone on 5/21/22, very easy flat trail. My hike started at the SW trailhead to the descent where the railroad tressel was located, rested and returned to car. This area is very isolated, did not see another person on this nearly 3 hr hike. Several reviews complained about how poorly maintained the trail was, my experience was this trail is no worse maintained than most grass/dirt rail trails I have hiked.

Awesome Trail

May, 2022 by speidel20

We spent three days May 10-12 riding the New River Trail. We stayed in Galax at the New River Trail Cabins, which were great.
Day 1 we rode from Galax-Byllseby Dam-Fries and back to Galax...~41 miles round trip.
Day 2 we drove to Foster Falls and rode from Foster Falls to Byllseby Dam and back, which was ~28 miles round trip.
Day 3 we drove to Draper and rode from Draper to Foster Falls and back which was ~38 miles round trip.
The trail is in excellent condition and the views of the river are amazing. There are significant rock formations along the cliffs of the trail. Some of the pictures of the rock formations do not capture the scale of these rock formations. Most of the trail is very remote so it is very peaceful and you only hear the sound of the water.
We came across a billy goat at Buck Dam, which was something new and was also saw an eagle flying at Foster Falls.

Love this trail

April, 2022 by kevshh7

What a beautiful trail to ride your bicycle on. So scenic by the creek you’ll oftentimes spot heron perched on a rock looking for fish. This trail along with the connecting trail that takes you to a park off highway 103 is a 13 mile easy ride with very gentle and gradual grades that generally can be managed with one or two downshifts. Hoping to see this trail expanded in the future.

Huckleberry Trail

Huckleberry Trail head minutes from our Inn

February, 2022 by smagenheimer1

We love The Huckleberry Trail! We are the proud owners of A bed and breakfast in a historical queen Ann Victorian home. The Oaks Victorian Inn- 1893 built of the famous Wilderness Trail and just 1 mile from the current head of the Huckleberry. Electric assist bikes are easily rented to enjoy the full 14 mile length of the paved route. We have many guest use the trail to access Virginia Tech football games or campus events by bike. The views and changes in landscape is just magical and what you dreamed of seeing on a coutry trek in Virginia. What a great addition to have in the Christiansburg/Blacksburg communities.

Roanoke River Greenway

Great Family ride

December, 2021 by highfadeit14

Excellent bike ride for young riders. Offers a flat, soft surface without too many climbs etc. Also, lots of places (restaurants) etc. to stop and eat along the way. Plenty of parking available around the trail. Trail runs right through downtown Lynchburg!

New River Trail State Park

Still Incredible

October, 2021 by woodswally

My wife and I rode the trail over the last two days. We have been anxious to return since our very first ride on the New River. Kudos to the Va State Parks and all of the staff who make this trail consistently one of the best family friendly trails anywhere. My wife and I hope to return again before too long to enjoy this wonderful experience again.

New River Trail State Park

Beautiful Trail

October, 2021 by ksk6963

In early October 2021 my wife and I bicycled from Galax to Fries and back on day one and then from Foster Falls to Buck Dam and back on day two. This is a real gem and an easy ride with spectacular views. When riding uphill the grade is very mild and we never strained or had to shift into a very low gear.

The surface is crushed gravel which is smoother in some places than other and there are lots of fallen walnuts scattered on the trail. I rode with 32mm tires and didn't have any trouble, however, I wouldn't want to ride the trail on anything thinner.

We can't wait to return soon and complete those sections we didn't get to the first time.
