Nice/ Lots of Bumps

May, 2022 by sycm5r8n4f

This is a nice Trail for a long walk or short ride You definitely need to be riding a mountain bike a road bike Because the trail is very bumpy Lots of shade on this trail with those hot days.

Emily B. Taylor Greenway

Love this trail

April, 2022 by kevshh7

What a beautiful trail to ride your bicycle on. So scenic by the creek you’ll oftentimes spot heron perched on a rock looking for fish. This trail along with the connecting trail that takes you to a park off highway 103 is a 13 mile easy ride with very gentle and gradual grades that generally can be managed with one or two downshifts. Hoping to see this trail expanded in the future.

Huckleberry Trail

Huckleberry Trail head minutes from our Inn

February, 2022 by smagenheimer1

We love The Huckleberry Trail! We are the proud owners of A bed and breakfast in a historical queen Ann Victorian home. The Oaks Victorian Inn- 1893 built of the famous Wilderness Trail and just 1 mile from the current head of the Huckleberry. Electric assist bikes are easily rented to enjoy the full 14 mile length of the paved route. We have many guest use the trail to access Virginia Tech football games or campus events by bike. The views and changes in landscape is just magical and what you dreamed of seeing on a coutry trek in Virginia. What a great addition to have in the Christiansburg/Blacksburg communities.

Latham Park Greenway

Short and sweet

February, 2022 by jimmy4

For such a short trail, this one is enjoyable. The trail is all concrete and has a few hills, especially going under the roadway. With a skate park and ball fields along one side and a creek along the other, this is a nice neighborhood trail. I visited the trail in mid February with temps in the low 50s, and the trail was well used. Park at the skate park.

Roanoke River Greenway

Great Family ride

December, 2021 by highfadeit14

Excellent bike ride for young riders. Offers a flat, soft surface without too many climbs etc. Also, lots of places (restaurants) etc. to stop and eat along the way. Plenty of parking available around the trail. Trail runs right through downtown Lynchburg!

Salem Lake Trail

Salem Lake

Great local trail.

Ringgold Rail Trail

Good Trail

May, 2021 by hammell_joseph

Great trail for family walking, running, biking. It’s wide clear trail, I left one star off as the bridge is supposedly out and there are barriers that keep you from crossing. Otherwise, it is still a good spot for some outdoor exercise.

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!
