Roanoke Canal Trail

Roanoke Canal Trail

March, 2017 by lawnshark11

I ride this trail pretty often. It's a awesome trail to ride. If you haven't checked it out you need to. It has some gourgous views of the Roanoke River and the trail is a good workout.

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.

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.

Roanoke Canal Trail

Mixed Bag - Not for the Faint of Heart but Enjoyable

January, 2015 by gsbuckeye

Just rode the eastern end of the trail (from mile post 7.8 – River Falls Park/Weldon to 3.3 – River Road Parking Lot and back again) last night (Friday, January 3, 2015). Several notes:
1. Great parking area in Weldon (with rest rooms) but trail begins by following the STREET! (I inadvertently followed a 4-wheeler track along the RIVER until it petered out and I had to fight my way through the brambles uphill to civilization.)
2. Signage is provided by small 4”x4” posts about 24” tall with little directional triangles. Easy to miss.
3. As others have noted, do NOT plan to tow a trailer along this segment of the trail. It really is “single-track” in places and marshy in others (if you follow the trails around the water treatment facility.) Additionally, two separate washouts required me to get off my bike and push back up to the trail.
4. I did not allow enough time to confidently explore the area. On way back (correctly on the street this time), I found the Riverside Mill, a “unique emporium” featuring local artists, an antique and collectible mall (50 dealers!), used books and women’s designer fashions, shoes and handbags. Also found the old train station that looked pretty interesting. And did I mention that Weldon is the “Rockfish Capital of the World”? (True – when the stripers run in the spring there are fishermen up and down the river. A pretty famous deal.)
5. I drove up from the south on US-301. Stopped (again, too briefly – sorry, Carl, the museum director who was more than willing to converse!) at the Halifax Museum, dedicated to one of the earliest groups to press for independence from the Crown. Worth an hour or so to watch the video and poke around the museum and see the restored areas in the town of Halifax.
6. Yes, I plan to go back and ride the entire trail. It’s pretty rugged, but that’s okay sometimes. Could make for a really unique destination trail some day, but not quite yet. I hope that local industries would adopt sections and really turn it into a show piece for the area.

Roanoke Canal Trail

Weldon End MTB only

May, 2014 by gim820

Rode trail with dual shock MTB. Forget road or trail bikes. First 3-4 miles out of Weldon only MTB compatible. Trail maintenance is not up to speed. Signage is poor especially at mid point where trail peters out and is found only by searching for a one tire trail through what appears to be a landowners personal pasture/yard close to the canal. Based on where one exits from the trees, it would appear you need to ride a gravel road toward a mansion but that ends up in a private parking area associated with 4-5 garages---luckily no one came out to chase me away.

Tar River Trail

Pleasant ride

August, 2013 by annlupton

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.

Tar River Trail

Nice Trail

November, 2012 by donb

First thing, this trail is only 3.1 Miles one way according to my odometer.

My wife and I road this trail Thanksgiving weekend, it is a nice trail. Like many of the greenways in and around central NC, this trail would benefit from some work. The asphalt is raised in many areas by the roots of trees. The parks along the trail seemed to be well kept and would make a great picnic spots.

The leaves were down and the Tar River beautiful, this trail was fun to ride even though it was shorter than advertised. If you want a short ride, it is worth the drive.

Roanoke Canal Trail

Good ATB/MTB trail

September, 2009 by lars1367

It was a little rough with a Burley and two kids in tow! I would not advise taking a child, or children, in a trailer beyond the I-95 section of the trail, as it gets more difficult (fun if you are into technical riding and have a good bike). I'd like to see the trail managed better, more consistancy in the trail surface, and marked better. Over-all, it was a fun ride, despite the unadvertised single-track section of the trail.
