Great trail for our first RTC bike. Trail nicely maintained. Saw some wildlife and great views of the river.
This is a different type of trail that we normally ride. Normal to us is a wide paved or hard packed surface. Half of this is fairly wide hard packed or loose gravel. There are areas that are single or double lanes from a foot wide or more. For old folks like us it was challenging but not overwhelming The trail does travel next to a river, rock walls, forests, open fields and through cow pastures. Yep, cow pastures. The cows in the middle of the trail are easy to see and navigate around. They don’t seem to mind passersby’s. Their plops are more of a challenge, they are everywhere. Again, manageable. The biggest bother to me was opening the several gates along the way. You just can’t get a rhythm going. All that factored in the scenery, cows, deer, and eagles along the way was way cool. Even though it wasn’t the type of trail we normally ride, the difference was was both challenging and enjoyable. We rode the complete length. challenge challenge
TomPark,Thanks for the good review - your unusual rear bike rack caught my eye as well. Would you please tell me more about it and where purchased? Constance
This is absolutely worth the drive from near or far. The tunnel is nearly one mile long and nothing less than amazing. Kids will be astounded by the tiny waterfalls, dripping water, dark tunnel, and Tarzan vines everywhere. Take a headlight for them and you’ll be a hero. You can easily shorten the hike and get rid of almost all the elevation change by starting at the East trailhead and turning around after going through the tunnel. If part of your group want to finish the whole trail, the others can sit on a bench a few hundred feet outside of the tunnel. Enjoy!
Beautiful Trail 270' up in 2 miles if you're in shape stunningly beautiful 2 miles.
Nice trail. Fantastic view along the river. Rode my recumbent trike and found the trail enjoyable
We drove down and stayed the night in Waynesboro back in late April. The trail was very close by the town. It is a well maintained trail with ports-potties on either end. We parked at the northern end which is mainly downhill until we reached the tunnel. I recommend bringing a flashlight since the tunnel is nearly 3/4 of a mile and very dark. There are also uneven spots in the tunnel and a flashlight will help you safely pass through. If you down want to walk up the mountain I also recommend parking at the Afton lot. I don’t think this is worth riding bike on but highly recommend walking and enjoy the history boards along the way.
A new thru truss bridge has been constructed over the River A road detour is no longer required
Dogs are allowed on leash. I recommend bringing a flashlight, 300 lumen is recommended. We went in mid-April. The views from the east portal are fantastic and the hike up and down the west portal got the heart pumping. Kudos to everyone who opened this trail for the historical experience. It was worth the over 4 hour drive for me to visit the area.
It was beautiful walk with wooded views along well maintained paths. There is a slight incline that makes it easy to go up hill. Very enjoyable!
seems like half the tunnel was carved out of the existing rock. i walked through the tunnel. you will need a flashlight. short trail for a bike but the trail is in great condition
We hiked about 2.4 miles or so from CATEC to Melbourne Road. A lovely walk along an asphalt trail. This late in the day hike was a good choice for our dog who got excited seeing squirrels, rabbits, and a deer. We also passed several cyclists enjoying the same trail. A great hike for those who want to enjoy a not too long, not too short hike that is not too difficult.
