July, 2020 by mjgaytan

Not hard to do, difficult enough to present a challenge for a beginner, super enjoyable, big trees guarding the entire loop and fantastic lake views

Indian Head Rail Trail

great local trail

July, 2020 by klwilliams216

I’ve ridden this trail several times with my husband. Love the pleasant nature scenic ride.

Hawksbill Greenway

I enjoyed riding here with my family. A little crowded but if I went earlier in the morning I am sure that would have been better.

Saunders-Monticello Trail

absolutely beautiful

July, 2020 by jjustine

The trail is great. Hard packed gravel or boardwalks take you from the parking area to the Monticello visitor center. There are 10 stunning wood boardwalks that take you along this tree lined path. It is a slight uphill all the way up - but then it’s a refreshing downhill back again. There are bathrooms and a small cafe at the Monticello visitor center as well.

Rivanna Trail

great walking - short biking.

July, 2020 by jjustine

If you start at riverside park, it’s a nice 2-2.5 mile ride before it goes dense and dark. If you have a MTB you’d be fine or if you’re looking to hike, again - great. We also tried the start point next to the Fontaine research center and it’s good for MTB.

Rivanna Trail

disappointed

July, 2020 by fluffypepper8

The trails are nice paved for 1-2mi sections at the parks but you have to go on street with traffic or carry bike up steep rocky hills in woods between the parks. Sand before a bridge is prime for sliding down incline then missing the bridge will land you in ditch. Expect the paved paths in the parks easy level for everyone. The dirt path was thin but okay then you better be expert mountain biker for the steep cliff. parts.

Indian Head Rail Trail

perfect trail

June, 2020 by thepoetsuede

Pros: Quiet Clean Well maintained Gentle hills Wooded scenery Cons: One Porto potty on trail not much tree shade on trail itself

Indian Head Rail Trail

Refreshing journey

June, 2020 by thepoetsuede

Pros: Clean Well maintained Easy hills Runs Mainly through forest Some benches through trail Cons: Not too much tree coverage so the sun beats down One porter potty on trail

Cross County Trail (VA)

I agree with others- not for road bike

June, 2020 by archibald.samantha

Too many bumps, gravels and turns. Uneven concrete. I have a very light road bike and it was too much for my gears and pedals
