New River Trail State Park

Really liked this trail

July, 2021 by tfhutton

After doing the Virginia Creeper, this was next on my list. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was very impressed. The campground at Foster Falls was a perfect place to stay, with the visitor center and camp store nearby, and the cliffs of the New River rising up to proved a stunning backdrop. Trail itself was well maintained, with good signage, ample rest spots and toilets. Shot Tower makes for a very interesting stop along the way. Looking back at the pictures reminded me of what a nice ride this was.

Greenbrier River Trail

Great Trail

July, 2021 by joshualedwards

The Greenbrier River Trail has earned its National fame. It is a well maintained 78 mile trail mostly through the West Virginia wilderness. The trail follows the Greenbrier River from Cass to Caldwell, WV and runs through Marlinton, WV.

Renick to Seeburg

June, 2021 by bendtheredonethat

For me, this is by far the prettiest section. Much more wilderness... cliffs, open fields and wildlife.

Greenbrier River Trail

Bikepacking 3 day/2 night May 2021 by Paul & Greg

May, 2021 by paulz

We started our 3 day 2 night (Fri-Sun) bike packing trip in North Caldwell. We went to Cass and did a return trip. First day we rose about 47 miles to the campsite before the Marlton area. We had dinner in Seebert at "Jack Horner Corner" before camping. It is a multi purpose store. There is a grille, they had pizza, ice cream, package goods, snacks, some bike supplies and some sporting goods/rentals. The next day we had breakfast in Marlton and on the return trip we had dinner . Marlton was a small town. It had several food options and services. In Cass we visited the "Cass Company store. They have food, ice cream and touristy items. We did not look for any other services in Cass. That is pretty much it for services.
The trail itself was mostly two hard tracks with grass in the middle. There was a short section around Marlton that was paved. The trail was ok. I rode a hardtail with front suspension. Greg rode a hybrid without suspension. His hands tingled by the end of the days. Hybrid size tire were fine. Could get muddy in sections if the trail was wet. There were campgrounds about every 5 miles. They all had a table and area for a tent. Some had a water pump, shelter, comfort station or trash can. They all varied.
I suggest that you get the" Greenbrier River Trail" brochure or download it at https://wvstateparks.com/park/greenbrier-river-trail/ . It is rather helpful with trail info. Cell service was extremely limited. The businesses had wi-fi so we could face-time, IM or use Wi-fi enabled calling. The river was almost always next to the trail. It was scenic but the trail got monotonous. By the third day, I was ready to get off the trail partly because we did 70 miles the second day. The tunnels were short but you need lights. You may consider bringing a water filter. They were a couple tool stations but too far apart to be helpful. Horses could use the trail. We did not see any. There were some dried droppings. We did not see many people on the trail. We mostly saw day users around N. Caldwell on Sunday. The trail was nice but could use some upgrades to get into the elite category.

Hanging Rock Battlefield Trail

Easy trail for walking and casual running

May, 2021 by rlk_tl

While not long, this trail makes for a nice 4-mile run if you add the dead-end street past the North Trail Head parking lot. For even a longer, more challenging run, you can follow the signs to Hinchee Trail at the North End. That trail goes up for 2 miles until it reaches Carvin's Cove

My daughters and I like the surface of the Battlefield Trail, and it is great for a recovery run or a short tempo run. There are a couple of running groups that start at the Brewery parking lot: one at 4:15 am on Wednesday mornings and another at 5:45 pm Tuesday afternoons.

This is also a great trail for walking, especially for families to enjoy together and even biking for children.

Huckleberry Trail

the hills make for good coasting

May, 2021 by tom.joy

Parked at the Rec center and biked to the Gateway parking area - 11 miles one way. On the return, we took the trail headed into Blacksburg for a short distance - first trail I’ve seen with roundabouts. Yes, it is hilly - but it adds the opportunity for some good downhill coasting ! The mileage markers are interesting/inconsistent between sections. There are cement ones, road sign types, and sometimes it wasn’t super obvious which way the trail went. Trail Link kept us on the trail!

Riverway Trail (Radford)

Paved Riverside Trail for Walking and Biking in Radford, VA

April, 2021 by scottmann2020

A beautiful 3+ mile paved trail along the New River for walkers and bikers. This trail is in the City or Radford but it feels like you are in the countryside. Don't miss the section that turns away from the river towards "Connellys run" - a small stream that runs to the New. This section runs through a small valley with wild flowers, forest trees and plants all around and includes an arched railroad underpass, a tunnel under Lee Highway and 3 small cool wooden bridges that cross the stream. There are unpaved side trails off the paved trial that are available to explore the mountainside. Nice restaurants for food & drink and hotels nearby.

Paved, seems relatively safe. Parking at the Cinema a bit sketchy.

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!
