Thermal Belt Rail Trail

Bike/Trike Riders

July, 2024 by amy2paul

We were camping at Yogi Bear Resort in Bostic, NC and drove m trike and husband’s bike to the trail. It is a very nice trail, with well maintained, wide asphalt paths. More than half is shaded and through nature with the other parts parallelling roads and shops. You cross several roads but the crossings are well marked and almost everyone stopped to let us cross even when they had the right of way. Very enjoyable ride.

Thermal Belt Rail Trail

Very Enjoyable. Perfect for us. 65 years old

June, 2024 by wpatterson1

June 22, 2024 92 degrees Rode e-bike. Parked at Forrest Hunt School lot. Path was very wide and smooth. Great markings for traffic. Restroom and water on the trail. Lots of shade! Several restaurants along the main road. Mile 1 or north, is more rural. Some pretty views of the mountains. We enjoyed it and will be back again.

Fantastic Trail

June, 2024 by fkelly17

Rode this trail on June 7th, 2024 and it was an awesome ride. We started at the northern trailhead and rode 10 miles south and back. Super wide and very smooth asphalt the whole way. There were some downed trees from a Thunderstorm the night before blocking part of the trail on the way out but the cleanup crew had reopened it on our way back. So, very well maintained trail. Highly recommend.

French Broad River Greenway

Two seriously dangerous intersections on trail

June, 2024 by jkendall828

This trail is a good beginning to a great trail for the city of Asheville. I suggest you upgrade all intersections with cars, using the SC Swamp Rabbit Trail as an example. Bright green crosswalks, all traffic stops when bikes or walkers need to cross busy roads. Amboy Rd across from Citgo is very dangerous. Please address. Amboy Rd, Lyman St, Meadow Rd needs immediate attention!

Thermal Belt Rail Trail

wonderful paved trail

May, 2024 by janek218

Started this trail at the Forest Hunt Elementary school parking area. Rode the “almost 30 “ miles of this trail. It was amazing. It’s flat and wide. The trails travels thru woods and tiny quaint towns. There are places to stop and grab a bite to eat. We had pizza and fried pickles at FLY BOY. It was not crowded on this Friday afternoon. Saw lots of squirrels. Highly recommend this trail. We had e bikes but it would be very easy to have a pedal bike due to flatness and no hills. The bike path very well maintained.

Thanks for such a nice way to see NC

April, 2024 by vc2019

Enjoyed the entire trail on Aprils Fool Day. It is a nice wide trail from beginning to end. There are some road crossings but all are well marked. We saw walkers and cyclist on this overcast spring day. Impressive maps at the parking lots.
