Greenbrier River Trail

If it has rained recently, be prepared to get wet and dirty....sigh

September, 2020 by bikin-mike

I can’t believe I’m writing a negative review of this HoF trail. After COVID-19 killed our original vacation plans, I was looking forward to 77 miles of social distance riding in the beauty of WV. After a quick snack at the lovely historical Cass General Store, started our ride to Marlinton. We were dry for about 30 mins then rode in a light rain for about 45 mins. That’s when the fun ended. Trail is part standard 8ft wide cinders, mostly two 12” tracks with grass and weeds in the center, and part all grass with two little 6” tracks. After the rain, the tracks became puddles and sometimes little streams. We tried to avoid them by switching from one side to the other, but the center grassy part was usually pretty soft so we found it was better to just splash through the puddles. Luckily, most of them were shallow and solid bottoms so it was easy going, but it just sprayed water and grime all over us and our bikes. Everything was coated with brown/black gunk by time we got to Marlinton. Rained overnight, so the next morning I rode to the end of the pavement at about MP 53 and then saw more puddles. Not doing that for a 2nd day.

My son rode the entire trail (see the pic of him and his filthy bike)and he said it seemed to get better after he left Pocahontas County and got near Caldwell. Maybe more maintenance money at that end?

My guess is it takes a day or two for these puddles to dry out because of all the shade?!?!

The trail has everything I love in a trail. Along a river, lots of curves, tunnels, a few bridges, beautiful scenery, lots of shade, and peaceful and quiet. So bummed that mud puddles took the joy out of it. Maybe I’ll have better luck next time......Bikin-Mike - Sept 2020

Lick Run Greenway

lovely

September, 2020 by kylek1953

More signage would have been nice but getting a bit lost was all part of the fun. It’s ALOT of uphill if you start downtown. I started at Valley View... parked near Best Buy. We took two cars to avoid the uphills on the return. Just beautiful!

New River Trail State Park

Beautiful biking trail!

September, 2020 by jsarinana81

My husband and I took a mini vacay to this area to bike this trail. It was truly gorgeous. We started in Galax and biked 17 miles in and then turned back around. On the way back, it is an uphill climb. Keep that in mind if you have kids with you, or you’re new to biking. On this route you will go through a tunnel and over a bridge, see numerous waterfalls, rapids, and the dam. It was a remote but very well maintained trail. Would definitely love to go back to bike some of the other areas of it!

Runs along the New River, and is very peaceful. I parked in Bissett Park.

Two Great Days on the Trail

August, 2020 by sandymo

We rode from Pulaski to Galax the first day and back the 2nd day. It’s a great trail. It does have a lot of double track so probably not the best for pulling a trailer or riding a trike unless you pick the specific areas without double track or don’t mind the rough ride. I highly recommend the Jackson Park Inn on the Pulaski end and The Doctors Inn on the Galax end. Also, don’t miss the Creek Bottom Brewery in Pulaski. The owner at the Pulaski Bike shop is also amazing and will take your call if you call the phone number posted on the door. I wouldn’t recommend smaller than 32mm tires but certainly saw many road bikes on the trail. Must better experience with bigger tires. We were on 29x2.35 tires on our tandem. Enjoy the ride!

New River Trail State Park

Gorgeous, remote yet well maintained trail

August, 2020 by kennethrwettig

Whenever your taking the family on a trip to a place no one you know has experienced, it is a bit nerve wracking. New River exceeded any expectations we had. The Mill Race campground at Foster Falls is a total gem, with a really fun section of rapids that you can tube down. The campground is well supported by a camp store (which rents bikes and water craft). While the whole trail is really picturesque, the section from Galax to Fries Junction (along Chestnut Creek) is really stunning. Tons of cute bridges and great places to take a dip. The one thing to note is that the trail is remote. There are no towns along the way so you do need to pack your food and water for the day. I would highly recommend this trail to cyclists of all experience level, provided they packed enough food and water for the day.

Lewisburg and Ronceverte Trail (L&R Trail)

Good for a short stroll

July, 2020 by aarronward01

The trail isn’t completed, so right now it’s just a nice sidewalk in a quiet neighborhood. Once it extends I’m sure it’ll be awesome. If you’re looking for a short walk and some fresh air when you’re already in Lewisburg, it’s worth it.

Mill Mountain Greenway

tough thousand feet

River bridge closed

July, 2020 by timfisher58

Great trail with lots of scenery and very clean and no potholes. Altho the bridge over the river on the north end is closed due to vandalism.

Roanoke River Greenway

A terrific, safe trail right through a city

June, 2020 by ockham3

I ride the Roanoke River Greenway several times a week. I park at either the Norwich trailhead At Bridge Street or the 13th Street entrance. To add the Tinker Creek Greenway, I park at one of two side by side lots on Wise Avenue or at Fallon Park. This section has a very steep hill which connects to the Roanoke River Greenway at the Water Pollution Plant. Great fun. A nice side trip is to cross over to the Garden City Greenway, a two mile climb up and back 2 miles to the RRG. An 18-20 mile excursion in total. Did it this morning. Great!
The ride through the several city parks is quite beautiful and on the weekends there are lots of riders, joggers and walkers sharing the trail with families using the many picnic tables along the route.
I’m always safe, always within shouting distance of help if I need it at 75 years.

Mount Airy Greenway Connector

LUCKY!

June, 2020 by dcassady2011

In our small community we are so lucky to have these connecting trails to walk, jog and bike on. I just walked for six miles by the river and it was so nice and relaxing. Great job Mount Airy!
