Warrenton Branch Greenway

Great community asset!

May, 2018 by laurastark

The Warrenton Branch Greenway is a beautiful little connector trail. On a Tuesday morning, we saw folks out biking, jogging, and walking their dogs. During our early May visit, the trail was shady and green with lots of flowering bushes alongside. At the downtown Warrenton trailhead, we were also greeted by a little red caboose, which was cool to see. There were a couple of street crossings on quiet residential roads, but they were well marked and the drivers were courteous and happy to stop and let us cross.

Washington and Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park (W&OD)

Nice trail! Well paved & marked.

May, 2018 by opstadp

Rode part of this trail from Purcellville to Leesburg. We were short on time so only got to ride 7 miles out and 7 miles back. Loved the trail. Quiet, nicely paved, marked well and rural when you start out at the Purcellville end. Hope to go back and ride another section again and eventually cover all of it after a few rides!

Rivanna Trail

disappointed

April, 2018 by tom.joy

We started in Riverview Park and had a nice ride north for 2 miles then the trail turned to a path that you needed a mountain bike to navigate, so disappointed we returned to our car. We were excited to read about a trail around Charlottsville but very disappointed to learn that it wasn't a reality.

Cross County Trail (VA)

Not for Road Bikes

April, 2018 by dgoosbey2

I wish I read the reviews before taking my road bike on this trail. I started at the Lorton entrance and the trail quickly became mud and gravel. My road slick tires were definitely ill equipped for this segment of the trail. Better for cyclocross and mountain bikes.

Indian Head Rail Trail

Parking Access

October, 2017 by generalliam

Just used to trail today for biking.
This is also parking available at the trail end on theodore green blvd, white plains.
Lovely experience, had to deal with cross winds though, lol

Indian Head Rail Trail

Beautiful well kept trail

October, 2017 by myth000

very nice wide trail. Its never crowded and its well kept with some shade during the summer month.

Winchester Green Circle

City & Sidewalk Riding

August, 2017 by lirpakooz

If you're okay with riding along side traffic, and stopping at red lights, then this "trail" might be for you. The local commuters don't appear to be very bike friendly. After hubby almost got hit by a car when we had the blinking right of way, and the next car almost clipped me, we turned around and left the "trail". Perhaps it is better done by foot. A lot of hills, not flat. Paved and concrete sidewalk. The park is nice, but cyclists are not permitted to ride around it. We chose to explore Shenandoah University by bike, and may returns to this path as walkers instead of cycling. Maybe you'd like this circle, but it is not for us. Happy Trails!

Linton Hall Road Trail

wide sidewalk

August, 2017 by jill.lepp

It is a wide sidewalk with plenty of room to pass people. It is smooth and very stroller friendly. The traffic along side it can be very busy and loud. There are a few larger hills.

Warrenton Branch Greenway

Expanded trail-- very nice

June, 2017 by bcman44

This beautiful trail has been expanded from 1.5 miles to almost 3 full miles. The latest section is gravel and somewhat rough--- but a nice addition to the originals original asphalt. Well worth the ride!

Warrenton Branch Greenway

Great ride on expanded trail

June, 2017 by bcman44

This short but interesting trail has been expanded

Indian Head Rail Trail

Beautiful off road paved trail

May, 2017 by ggaluardi

The trail has long easy grades traversing woods, meadows and streams. Lots of wild life (and cows in the woods). It does have the advantage of being new and in great shape. Hopefully the trail will be maintained to retain its quality.

Dahlgren Railroad Heritage Trail

DanS

May, 2017 by d.schardein

While in the area I was able to ride a quick 6 mile section from the Route 610 access. Very nice rustic trail with beautiful seanery.
Note that at the time of my ride (Early May) there was very high grass in parts of the trail and the ticks were numerous so take precautions.
Will return for sure for a longer ride.
