Boone Greenway

This is an excellent trail for easy walking or riding. Only negative are the irresponsible pet owners who don't pick up their dog waste.

Railroad Grade Road

Too many cars

July, 2021 by joshhollar711

This has the potential to be a good place to ride, follows along the New River. However, it is a one lane road, and there are a lot of cars. Many cars are going fast and do not slow down. Definitely no place for kids to be riding. Be sure to get permission to park, we got permission to park and still got questioned. Virginia Creeper from Damascus is a much nicer ride, and no cars. We won’t go back to Todd or Railroad Grade Rd.

Erwin Linear Trail

Nice trail, but...

There are too many bikes and today I encountered a couple on motor scooters. Signs say motorized vehicles are prohibited but there is no enforcement.

Virginia Creeper National Recreation Trail

Tough Ride, But Worth It

June, 2021 by rwest3

We set out on our gravel bikes from Abington and rode to Whitetop and back. We are avid road cyclists and I’ve got to admit that the stretch from Damascus to Whitetop was no joke. It was a slow, steady grind to Whitetop. We should have brought more fluid. Each of us brought two bottles and we burned through those quickly. We were able to stop for Gatorade and cold water on the way back at the Bike Exchange in Damascus. There was nothing open in Whitetop on the day we rode.

Railroad Grade Road

Nice Ride

June, 2021 by supersportskibo

Wonderful,easy paved ride. Great for ebikes. Pavement is somewhat uneven in some spots, but still enjoyable. Encountered some vehicles, everyone was nice & considerate. Awesome food at Riverview restaurant, worth the stop

Erwin Linear Trail

Repair Work Completed

The bridge work is done (June 2021). Whole length of trail is currently passable and in great shape.

Erwin Linear Trail

Really Pleasant Trail

June, 2021 by ldiernisse

Great little trail. In excellent condition and with beautiful scenery. Very easy parking and there is a store across the street. It's a bit short but if you go one way and back that's eight miles and it's pleasant enough you could even turn it into 16 miles without getting bored.

Mendota Trail

A little rough

May, 2021 by fannakate

A little on the rough side due to the larger gravel chunks, as well as pretty hilly! Not the smoothest ride but decent!

Kingsport Greenbelt

Great Trail

May, 2021 by hardenjessica311

I LOVE this trail!! It’s right next to my house and I am on it every day.(at least once a day) My family and I use this trail more than we use our vehicles!¿

Railroad Grade Road

Great Biking

May, 2021 by ceenit

Went on a Sunday morning, very minimal traffic. Great view next to river. Flat, cool breeze and excellent views. Saturday during high season may be a bit more traffic with river tubing. All in all excellent and I will be doing it again this week.

Tweetsie Trail

upper 1/2

May, 2021 by rdtpollard

I left from the Johnson City end and the first 4 miles were really beautiful; the 5th mile began to go through more development and then by the 6th mile, you are riding along a busy highway with lots of shops and “driveway” / road crossings that are busier than the crossings in the first 4 miles. Next time I would only go to the Sycamore Shoals State Park entrance and then turn around....I prefer woods and open scenery to buildings and strip malls

Powell River Trail

wonderful w kids and dogs

April, 2021 by dallassuzette88

We took the dogs and kids w/ one in a stroller. It was perfect. The 3 year old tuckered out right before the end but it was beautiful, fun to explore and good for the soul! Definitely not a real hike just a walk but till the kids get older it was great!
