Third Fork Creek Trail

love it

Don’t bike after a rainfall. It floods

American Tobacco Trail

Awesome

Wonderful

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.

White Oak Creek Greenway

it’s nice trail

July, 2021 by hakman1129

This trail has lots of smaller “sub-trails” which are also pretty nice to walk on if you don’t want to walk the full 7 mile trail.

Creekside Park Trails

Great Park/Trail

July, 2021 by brilesfamilynet

One of my favorites places to walk!

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.

White Oak Creek Greenway

well kept up trail.

July, 2021 by ray.brown_tl

Took a bike ride from David Drive to the American Tobacco trail and back. This trail is narrower than what I am used to in Connecticut but on those trails many go to fast, this was a more relaxing ride. Found the trail to be well taken care of and few people using it. On the return where the trail goes under highway 55 they could use signs for which trail goes in each direction. Most other intersections are marked.

Brevard Bike Path

No signs

July, 2021 by lovefurlife_tl

I met other people with kids trying to navigate crossing busy intersections with NO SIGNS PLEASE DO YOUR JOB PEOPLE PART OF WHICH IS KNOWING NOT Everyone is experienced trail followers. Would it really really hurt you to do your job and put signs especially when it’s dangerous.? It seems you can’t see outside your own experience level. Shame on you putting animals and children in danger because you are too short sighted to see the whole picture.

Crabtree Creek Trail

Gorgeous!

July, 2021 by vickitaylor1

Beautiful trees and rolling hills. We Floridians loved it!

Roanoke Canal Trail

great trail

July, 2021 by jamessimpkin1

Wife and I went today - July 6- started at oak woods trail by the hydro plant - went to the end and back - DEFINITELY recommend a short stop at the Roanoke Canal Museum ($4 cash only) - the curator there was very knowledgeable and made the trail that much better knowing the history we were riding through. The only part we had an issue with was once we left the museum & crossed the street- the brush was blocking the trail entrance sign - we quickly figured that out in a few blocks & when we turned around headed back to the museum- the sign was in a clear view. Lots of critters along the path too.

Oklawaha Greenway

A blader's paradise!

July, 2021 by funkykittyrecords

This was my first visit to Oklawaha. GPS took me to an entrance off 7th Avenue and 64 coming in from Asheville just across the road from Jackson Park proper. (I was told there is only about 1/4 mile of a paved path on that side, and then it is gravel.) There is a mix of walkers, with and without dogs, skateboarders, and bikers.

I was able to get right on the path and take it the entire way to Berkeley Mills Park. I did take the offshoot to Patton Park and then back onto the main trail.

For rollerblading, this was excellent! It hit all the markers; paved, mostly flat, clear of debris, well marked, and not overcrowded. The path follows Mud Creek, and there are several benches throughout to stop and sit. The entire route is beautiful and well maintained. A nice mix of open and shaded areas.

The end of the path near the Berkeley Park entrance goes uphill at about an 8% grade so coming back down was a fun shot! If you start at that end - be prepared.

Oklawaha will definitely be in my rotation of great places to skate.

Duck Trail
