Getting Outside in a Time of Social Distance


As the days of social distancing add up in the response to COVID-19, trails are increasingly being counted on as places where people can continue to be physically active and find respite while practicing social distancing. As you plan your trail outing, be prepared that some trails may have limited services, including closed facilities like bathrooms, depots and visitor centers as well as limited or no staff. We encourage you to check the latest public health guidance from the CDC and your local/state governments, as well as the status of your trail, before heading out!

Dahlgren Railroad Heritage Trail

Nice ride but.....

April, 2020 by littlead77

As much as we have enjoyed the uniqueness of this trail our rides have been diminished by the sound of gun and rifle shots that seem to surround the trail. I would like to feel secure that these shotting ranges or properties are a safe distance away. But the first two miles beginning at the trail head do not feel safe.

Burke Lake Loop Trail

The Most Beautiful Trail

March, 2020 by dlong__sr_

Rocky Run Stream Valley Trail

pretty good for biking; perfect for running

March, 2020 by mmh96.mh

Relatively flat and partially paved. Some of the gravel ends up getting bigger and sharper so be careful if you don’t have bike tires that can handle that. Perfect for running but be careful for the gravel because you might hurt your knees!

Dick & Willie Passage Rail Trail

New section trailhead on Spruce Street Gorgeous and Musical

February, 2020 by saxapahawnc

Section 6B recently opened the trailhead with parking and restroom on Spruce Street, without exact address at Mulberry Creek (approx 1990 Spruce Street). It's about a half mile past Brookdale merging with Spruce at the Carilion Clinics and Spruce Street Station. After another follow up lab or doctor visit, hiking with the dog on Dick and Willie Passage is therapeutic. Minimal street noise at the parking lot, new evergreens lining the trailhead and new restroom facility, this is a tranquil spot to relax, breathe, and enjoy gorgeous scenery on highly maintained paved trails with excellent drainage.

Trail signs dot the length of the trail, easily sighted to stay on trail along creek, Country Club Drive, then more asphalt paved, densely wooded trail. Calls of frogs and creek water tinkling accompanied us the first quarter mile. The sounds of the river rushing picked up after Country Club Drive ended, as we were east of Smith River, again on well-sign marked asphalt trail, until a pond behind the sports complex.

Dog poop bag stations and a couple trash receptacles would be excellent to keep the trail as clean as possible while hiking and biking. The gravel flanking the asphalt and drainage/swales engineered along the trail kept water and mud off-trail, making this as dry as possible after multiple days of precipitation, or snow melting, more recently. I and the paws were dry, a perk we don't get in our own currently muddy yard. Excellent addition to parks and trails in Henry County. We plan to drive down solely for trail hiking and picnicking with the furry family in tow.
