Mill Mountain Greenway

e bike

July, 2024 by gibsontw

Mill mt is a great e bike trail due to big climb, I like to come back down the road due to downhill speed and roughness of the old paved road that makes the trail surface, makes a nice loop and can be extended out to the parkway and around the roanoke mt loop that is closed to vehicle traffice which has beautiful overlooks.

High Point Greenway Trail

great trail

July, 2024 by crnjakalex

Close to me, beautiful trail, shade is great in the summer.

Ararat River Greenway

Good ride for kids and casual riders

June, 2024 by normanbowers

Nice trail along the creek. Connects with the other two trails in town for a seamless ride. With the other two connecting trails it is an outstanding trail for a small town. Well done.

Garden City Greenway

Decent Trail

June, 2024 by trikeyeah

While this trail largely follows Garden City Blvd SE, there are some spots on it that are scenic and away from traffic. It mostly consists of a steady climb to the end of the trail, but the first three quarters of a mile is relatively flat with one climb at the quarter mile marker. The trail is plenty wide enough for passing and is paved in its entirety. There is a small park on the trail and park just off of the trail behind the elementary school. Because it is an off shoot from Roanoke River Greenway traffic is lighter than the main greenway. There is shade on about half of the trail. The biggest concern is on Wednesday’s it’s garbage day so there is usually garbage cans and other refuse waiting to be collected.

Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway

Nice Local Trail

May, 2024 by tayyarahdavidson

We enjoyed the trail. We rode from Guilford Military Park in Greensboro to Burmill Park In summerfield. Lots of up and down hills but not too strenuous. Paved and well maintained. Nice resting stops along the way.

Huckleberry Trail

We have been on a lot of rail trails, scenic yes... but not for the average rider...

Roanoke River Greenway

We rode this a 2nd time and it is so nice. Love the artwork. You ride right by Black Dog Salvage. Mostly level, not crowded. You can see the STAR from trail.

Salem Lake Trail

Nice trail

May, 2024 by janskinj

Circumvent the Salem Lake in 7 miles. Small section is asphalt and majority is packed dirt/gravel. Several sections of erosions and tree debris along with horse droppings. However, more eroded sections have been repaired. Lots of rolling hills and 2 steeper climbs with hairpin turns. Tough bike riding on weekends due to Lake’s popularity. Great balance of sun and shade with welcome lake breezes. Plenty of parking. Option to mountain bike on Jesus Trail or at the Dojo. If erosion was non existent-this would be a 5 star trail especially week days. One of our area favorites

Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway

bridge is out

April, 2024 by brian.laney8

The bridge crossing Lake Brandt 1/4 mile south of Strawberry Rd is blocked off. The detour is Battleground Rd to Bur-Mil park.

Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway

Has Potential

March, 2024 by prial

We began our ride at the northern terminus and rode only about a mile and a quarter before we came to a bridge that was closed and had to turn around. We got back in the car and went to a trailhead further south that was only to be found in the heart of an apartment complex. We rode in circles not able to find the trail leading to where the opposite side of the bridge closure might be. So we got back in the car once more and found the southern terminus of the trail and tried again. It was a better start with a stop at the Guildford Courthouse National Military Site (part of the National Park Service) where we could ride along the battleground car/bike tour road. Generally, the trail is not well signed and at points it is a shared sidewalk along busy roads. Coming from the cold of the north, we were looking to begin our bike season in a warmer March climate. The trail sections of this ride would be beautiful come April - September. This was a very hard-won 16.5 mile ride.

Salem Lake Trail

Needs repairs

February, 2024 by deb.calhoun5

We usually ride this multiple times a week. Went last week and boy does it need some work all around the lake. Lots of wash outs and gullies that make it difficult to ride.

Salem Creek Greenway

Great ride

February, 2024 by deb.calhoun5

We take this ride multiple times a week, when the weather is good. Only problem is Marketplace Shopping Center now has posted many signs that only parking is for shoppers in mall and you will be towed. We are now parking at Washington Park.
