Jackson River Scenic Trail

Well Maintained trail near a lovely river

March, 2021 by kennethrwettig

From Start point (Allegheny outfitters) to Smith Bridge (16 miles round trip???). This trail is well maintained, and though the portion we did, does not really ride along the river the entire time, the river is indeed very pretty. There was not a ton of wildlife or distinct features, but we did find a very cool old abandoned bridge to explore. Look promising for kayaking etc.

Lick Run Greenway

A beautiful greenway.

November, 2020 by ockham3

Lick Run is my favorite among all the Roanoke Greenway, but it is a bit short for a biker. Nice hill climb though. I usually begin at Wiley Drive on the Roanoke River Greenway and ride to Norwich then to Black Dog Salvage and on down 10 Street to 460. There is no bike trail on Orange Avenue, but there is unused sidewalk alongside the heavy traffic. Then to Lick Run and to the Mall!

This trail is in Covington, Virginia. The word “Scenic” in its name is a perfect description! A delightful, well maintained rail trail; don’t miss riding this trail! We did a YouTube video of our ride that you can find on our channel, Bent on Bike Trails.

New River Trail State Park

New River Trail State Park

November, 2020 by tom.morgan.100

The linear park in southwest Virginia with 57.7 miles of beautiful natural scenery, provides a wonderful biking experience! In our opinion, the New River Trail is one of the top rail trails we have ridden in the U.S. We did a YouTube video of our ride that you can find on our channel, Bent on Bike Trails.

Huckleberry Trail

Huckleberry Trail

November, 2020 by tom.morgan.100

The Huckleberry Trail is the result of a partnership between Christiansburg, Blacksburg and Montgomery County that provides a beautiful paved greenway for bikers, runners and walkers. Note...it is not a rail trail, there are hills! We did a YouTube video of our ride that you can find on our channel, Bent on Bike Trails.

Beautiful Fall Riding

October, 2020 by dsmyers1969

We rode the trail from Galax to Pulaski and back in 3 days. The trail is very beautiful flat on the Galax end and slight inclines on the Pulaski side. The gravel surface was in good shape and the restrooms are well maintained. My favorite section was the Fries spur. D Myers

Greenbrier River Trail

Great trail!

October, 2020 by thefords

If you come with realistic expectations, you will love this trail. If you expect perfectly groomed trail with multiple towns and cell phone service all of the time, I'd suggest you try something a little tamer. This trail is for those who crave solitude and beauty and don't mind if they have to pay a small price for it. I actually found the track to be pretty good, yes there are some bumps and puddles here and there but more the exception than the rule. Rode the trail from Cass to Caldwell as part of a longer trip and really enjoyed it despite some rain on the 2nd day. I really liked the Cass to Marlinton section as well as the last 10 miles or so into Caldwell. Overall this is a great experience well worth your time.

Potts Valley Rail Trail

Potts Trail

October, 2020 by adcolquhoun

Rode this on 10/5/20 with friends. Mountain bike a must. Trail in poor condition. Numerous fallen trees, long grass, and muddy patches on this short old elevated rail track through the woods. With a little maintenance this could be spectacular.

Greenbrier River Trail

Beautiful wilderness

October, 2020 by dsmyers1969

We rode the trail in three days. Marlinton to Cass and back day one. Renick to Marlinton and back day two, Caldwell to Renick and back day three. The trail was in good shape, we averaged 10 mph. Plenty of wildlife and raw nature. We stayed at the Greenbier State Park cabins. I highly recommend.

Greenbrier River Trail

Gravelbiking The Greenbrier

September, 2020 by keith_clouse

I rode this trail on a gravel bike with bikepacking bags and light weight camping equipment. I started at Cass, WV and did 77 miles the first day, then camped down at the first site on the trail near Caldwell, WV. I then retraced my path back to Cass on the second day. I researched this trail for several months prior to riding so I could get an understanding of trail conditions, features and amenities. This trail is highly impressive in its infrastructure and cleanliness! Starting Cass, with the understanding that The Green Bank National Radio Astronomy Observatory is right over the mountain, you should be aware this is a blackout zone for cellular networks but GPS is still active. The trail hosts an impressive number of campsites, many with facilities and pumps offering potable water. Being a multi-use trail, one should expect hikers, cyclists, joggers and horseback riders. There are several small towns along the way like Marlinton, Seebert and Renick and you’re treated to the grandeur of the Monongahela National Forest, the Watoga State Park and Calvin State Forest. You get two great tunnels and a ton of bridges from truss to girder to flat-deck. Being a railtrail, the surface is mostly level and packed with crushed limestone. Sometimes you get a little double track with a grassy center but mostly smooth sailing. A few puddles here and there, but paying attention to the weather prior to your trip can alleviate some suffering and/or misery. Overall, this was a fantastic trip that exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend this journey but will stress that basic planning and simple preparation are key to enjoying all this phenomenal trail has to offer!
