Bicentennial Greenway

South End Roller Coaster

February, 2018 by brokedown

My wife and I fully enjoyed riding the south end of the trail. We started at the information center in Jamestown. Parking there was free. The Path is asphalt and often provides lake views. Several bridges keep it interesting. The trail has some pretty sharp turns and is constantly providing short up hill approaches and of course, the down hill reward on the other side. Great conditioning ride.

Wolf Creek Greenway

Lovely Walk

January, 2018 by emmi331

I walk this trail often - it's very pretty, and the scenery varies, but most of it runs alongside Wolf Creek. It goes through sylvan areas, past some homes, crosses a couple of residential streets, passes a farm with animals grazing; the variation makes this fun. It's mostly level. Tall walkers will have to stoop in the tunnel that runs under a major roadway, though!

Riverwalk Trail (VA)

Nice ride along the Dan River

October, 2017 by opstadp

Took this trail in October for a nice fall ride on a beautiful sunny day. Nicely shaded for the most part. Started at the mid point near the Amtrak Station which is a great place because ample parking and if you don't bring your own bikes you can actually rent them there from a rental locked bike rack! When you cross over the river from the parking lot you can go either left or right onto the trail. We went right (after reading reviews that suggested this) and this was the longer and nicer end of the trail in my opinion. When you get to the park end and have to cross through the parking lot to the restroom building to jump back on the trail, the trail from there is hillier but I actually loved the way it wound through the hills and was very shaded with trees. When we got to the very end of the trail, we rode all the way back and then did the opposite end from were we entered from the bridge. Overall, we did about 20 miles. Was a great ride along the river, with a few little bridges, dams and benches to stop and rest if you choose.

Salem Lake Trail

Salem Lake Trail

September, 2017 by rphilyaw1

First ride around the lake last week. The leaves have really not started to change but when they do it will be nice. The ride was 7 miles. Not strenuous. Caught myself checking out nature and the wildlife and not paying attention to others on the trail. ;) Thinking of getting a bell for my bike to warn people I am coming up on them.

Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway

Enjoyable Bike Trail

March, 2017 by ms24112

We really enjoyed this path. We parked at Country Park and took the path North till the end near Strawberry Rd. We then retuned to our starting point and biked the portion that ends near Freddy's. Beautiful scenery on the well kept and very popular path.

Muddy Creek Greenway

Good Trail

November, 2016 by bonnieblue237

Short, but very good trail. Only 3 miles from end to end, we get a six-mile ride with a flat, well-paved asphalt surface. Several good parking areas and easy access for bikes, walking or jogging. Nice peaceful and relaxing setting.

Richmond and Danville Rail-Trail

Beautiful Stone Bridge on Trail but Can't See Well

November, 2016 by nicknich

Trail is OK. Pretty good for a cyclist. Couldn't get a good view of a beautiful stone bridge as there were barriers and fences preventing access.

Dick & Willie Passage Rail Trail

A little challenging

October, 2016 by herry

The trail is all paved. Since it is leaf falling time it was a little hard to see the trail in some spots. Not a busy trail but we didn't realize that it was uphill for 3 miles. According to my phone exercise app it is 695 foot change in elevation. Very gentle and doable, though. We parked at the Virginia Ave trail head. We have an RV so we parked in the old Food Lion plaza just above the trail head parking. There was no signage for the parking area on the main roads for the parking area.

Huckleberry Trail

I'm Your Huckleberry

This is a very nice trail. Well maintained, great views, good mix of terrain. Thanks Virginia.

Muddy Creek Greenway

Great Starter Trail, Flat, Shaded in Parts

September, 2016 by prospecthillbb

The city let us know the parking has been expanded for this trail so we tried walking part of it with out-of-town relatives. They liked it. We are taking up biking and need a flat trail to begin to get in shape. It's great. There are families (walking, biking), and dog walkers on a holiday like today. There are SERIOUS back and forth bikers during the weekdays. Few birds this time (too hot).

As to the trail ending in private property: We asked people and they said it was OK to use that part. It is more of a meander (those who bike FAST for exercise stay off that part!) Both the right and left fork end in a turn around loop--great for biking. The smaller side paths lead to homes. There is a Tiny Library on that part of the path, too.

As other said: well maintained The commemorative trees being plants along the way are a sweet touch. It looks like the south end of the trail will soon use a new parking lot near the elementary/middle school ball fields, now under construction.

It would be nice IF they added a toilet at the south end, too.

Wolf Creek Greenway

August, 2016 by nicka.wade

I rode this trail from the blue ridge park way down into Vinton. It was an easy ride of gentle downhill and flat sections. Trail condition was excellent with several sections having fresh gravel. The tunnel under Mountain View road is very picturesque.

Where the trail runs under Washington Ave was my only complaint. The tunnel was full of sand and head heights were extremely limited. I had to get off my bike and stoop down to not hit my head.
