Point Lookout Trail

Great ride uphill

October, 2021 by swordinhandnow

Real scenic. Steady rise. Just the right distance to and from.

McDowell Creek Greenway

The new extension from Westmoreland to Magnolia Ridge (By Publix) is a great addition.

Great ride!

This was our first ride on a rail trail and we loved it. Not crowded at all, smooth surface and beautiful scenery.

Boone Greenway

nice little around town trail

August, 2021 by julie222

A nice day out. Such a nice trail to relax and bike or walk around the outskirts of Boone. A great asset to the community.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Great Fitness Trail

August, 2021 by sandymo

We rode end to end and back yesterday on our tandem. It’s a very nicely done trail and the pavement is smooth as silk. It’s probably not a destination trail, but if you’re in the area, you don’t want to miss it. There are plenty of places to grab a drink or a bit to eat. There is a bike shop in Spindale. The at-grade crossings are plentiful in a few of the towns, but we still managed a decent pace and the crossings were well marked and safe.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Great trail, with 1 caveat

August, 2021 by daveconnelly

The Thermal Belt is a lovely trail, now with a smooth, 12' asphalt surface. It's the 2nd longest rail-trail in NC, after the American Tobacco Trail. The one caution: Be careful not to let your front wheel wander off the pavement. There's a 3" drop-off to loose gravel shoulders. Those shoulders slope away from the pavement. So your next destination is a ditch. If Rutherford County will build up the shoulders, then the Thermal Belt will become much safer.

Shelby Rail-Trail

broken trail

August, 2021 by wilsonanthonyfilm

We attempted to go along the trail to enjoy the bridge shown in the pictures but it was very apparent once arriving that it no longer exists. Not sure at which point it was dismantled but be prepared not to be able to go from one end of the trail to the other.

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...

July, 2021 by david.lee.byrd

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.
