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.
I roundtripped this trail in April ‘21 on a hybrid mountain bike. 35.5 miles, 3:40 time, 9.6mph average speed. The trail was well maintained - grass was cut, large fallen trees were removed, garbage containers were emptied, trail parking is plentiful at the several trailheads. The first few miles out of LaCrosse were paved, the rest is crushed gravel, softer sand, and dirt/grass. I saw only 2 other bikers all day (they were on e-bikes). There definitely is not a lot of use on the trail, there are no tunnels or really long trestles or bridges, and there is not much in terms of trailside amenities that I could tell (restaurants, bed and breakfasts, stores), but if you’re looking for a nice long ride in the woods with nobody else around, this is the trail for you. If it gets connected into a larger/longer trail system, and if that spurs some economic development along the way in terms of businesses catering to bikers and tourists, this current trail could be a great foundation for a future longer trail that could be a bucket-list type of ride.
My wife and I rode the trail recently on our fat tire ebikes. Beautiful late winter day, almost 70 degrees. The trail was well maintained, almost entirely flat. The first 1/2 mile is not that great, another reviewer noted it passed by an old mine site. After that, once the trail follows the river, it was very nice. The trail was not crowded on the day we went (not a weekend). We passed several bikers and some families walking with strollers. The trail is plenty wide for passing, or being passed, in either direction. There was some "evidence" of horses, but we saw no one horseback riding on the day we went. Nice, comfortable ride, we'll go back.
Lick Run is my favorite among all the Roanoke Greenway, but it is a bit short for a biker. Nice hill climb though. I usually begin at Wiley Drive on the Roanoke River Greenway and ride to Norwich then to Black Dog Salvage and on down 10 Street to 460. There is no bike trail on Orange Avenue, but there is unused sidewalk alongside the heavy traffic. Then to Lick Run and to the Mall!
Love this trail. It just get crowded on the weekend so better be early. A lot of people especially kids on the bridge so u have to really pay attention in this part.
Rode last weekend (11/7 and 11/8) and the temps were in the high seventies! Rode from the trailhead at Prospect to Pamplin and then to Farmville and back to Prospect for a 32 mile round trip. The trail is pea gravel and not as smooth as crushed limestone for sure. It's more difficult and a slower ride. Stayed at the Hampton Inn which was super clean and had contactless entry - but it was a bit over-occupied IMHO during Covid. Second day we rode from the Camp Paradise trailhead and rode the 1 mile or so to the High Bridge. Got there at 8am and spent maybe 15 minutes on the bridge watching the birds and enjoying the view. Saw maybe 3 others. Rode into Farmville and had breakfast at Walker's Diner! Super great food and could eat outside. Then we rode from Farmville to the other end of the trail which is very uneventful (just a dead end in the woods) and back to Camp Paradise for another 30 miles or so. When we got to our car at 1:30pm the lot was very full!! It was a beautiful ride but I wish it was paved! We did it on a Specialized road bike and a Trek 7.5 Hybrid.
Enjoy the beauty and sounds of nature while biking along the Piney and Tye Rivers! It is one of our local trails that we ride 5 or 6 times a year. We did a YouTube video of one of our rides this year that you can find on our channel, Bent on Bike Trails.
A linear Virginia State Park with a spectacular bridge, beautiful natural setting and really well maintained bike pathway! Don’t miss this great ride! You can even do a metric century if you ride both ways since the trail is 32 miles long!! 😎 We did a YouTube video of our ride that you can find on our channel, Bent on Bike Trails.
Pastoral 7 mile rail trail bike ride along the Maury River from Lexington to Buena Vista, Virginia. Here’s your chance to “Ride with the Cows! “ We hope the washed out bridge can be replaced soon so the trail segments are reconnected. We did a YouTube video of our ride that you can find on our channel, Bent on Bike Trails.
We were skeptical about riding the Tobacco Heritage Trail after reading several reviews. But what a wonderful surprise our ride turned out to be! The 17 mile trail in southeast Virginia is well groomed and maintained with a surface of crushed stone, grass and pavement. The trail goes through canopied forests, tobacco farms and homey small towns. Our YouTube video of the trail is on our channel, Bent on Bike Trails.
Beautiful ride on a perfect fall day. Nice and flat with interesting things along the way like the tunnel. Lots of places for picnics, ice cream, coffee,cafés. Will return!
Had a great time. Gradual upgrades.
