Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway

Enjoyable Bike Trail

March, 2017 by ms24112

We really enjoyed this path. We parked at Country Park and took the path North till the end near Strawberry Rd. We then retuned to our starting point and biked the portion that ends near Freddy's. Beautiful scenery on the well kept and very popular path.

Deep River Rail Trail

Short, flat, relaxing, easy

February, 2017 by hampsplace

Definitely what another reviewer mentioned--great for a Sunday afternoon walk.

Deep River Rail Trail

Wonderful setting

February, 2017 by jackritterskamp

We biked the main part of the trail and loved it. The access from the parking area down to the trail is steep in places and not suitable for narrow tires in the loose gravel area. The trail itself is hard-packed gravel and well maintained. There are benches and trash cans. We look forward to the extension.

Muddy Creek Greenway

Good Trail

November, 2016 by bonnieblue237

Short, but very good trail. Only 3 miles from end to end, we get a six-mile ride with a flat, well-paved asphalt surface. Several good parking areas and easy access for bikes, walking or jogging. Nice peaceful and relaxing setting.

Dick & Willie Passage Rail Trail

A little challenging

October, 2016 by herry

The trail is all paved. Since it is leaf falling time it was a little hard to see the trail in some spots. Not a busy trail but we didn't realize that it was uphill for 3 miles. According to my phone exercise app it is 695 foot change in elevation. Very gentle and doable, though. We parked at the Virginia Ave trail head. We have an RV so we parked in the old Food Lion plaza just above the trail head parking. There was no signage for the parking area on the main roads for the parking area.

Elkin & Alleghany Rail-Trail

under construction

September, 2016 by kristinshort

This trail is currently under construction. However, the trail is pretty nice and there is a beginner level mountain biking trail off of the main trail. It is easier to see on your way back. It will be on the left before you get back to the first large bridge. Also, the parking is free parking

Muddy Creek Greenway

Great Starter Trail, Flat, Shaded in Parts

September, 2016 by prospecthillbb

The city let us know the parking has been expanded for this trail so we tried walking part of it with out-of-town relatives. They liked it. We are taking up biking and need a flat trail to begin to get in shape. It's great. There are families (walking, biking), and dog walkers on a holiday like today. There are SERIOUS back and forth bikers during the weekdays. Few birds this time (too hot).

As to the trail ending in private property: We asked people and they said it was OK to use that part. It is more of a meander (those who bike FAST for exercise stay off that part!) Both the right and left fork end in a turn around loop--great for biking. The smaller side paths lead to homes. There is a Tiny Library on that part of the path, too.

As other said: well maintained The commemorative trees being plants along the way are a sweet touch. It looks like the south end of the trail will soon use a new parking lot near the elementary/middle school ball fields, now under construction.

It would be nice IF they added a toilet at the south end, too.

Salem Lake Trail

Beautiful trail

July, 2016 by timmy0728

This is a very nice trail. As long as you don't mind running on hard sand/dirt you will enjoy it. Ran the loop around the lake, mostly shaded, majority level. If in the area, take a lap around. I'm sure it's beautiful in the fall.

Riverwalk Trail (VA)

Fun Family Ride

June, 2016 by njordan34

My wife and I took our three kids (4,4,7) on this trail looking for something easy. This trail was great! On the river so lots to look and talk about. Would recommend to families with small kiddos.

Riverwalk Trail (VA)

Lovely Trail Along The River

May, 2016 by nannettess

There is a lot of parking if you cross the River on Main St. and turn left and then left again in a few blocks. You can bike back across the Main St. bridge and link up to the trail going north and south. There is also a short trail on the side of the trail by the parking lot. The trail is beautiful. It meanders along the course of the river. We rode on a Sunday and there were plenty of people but not a problem.
