Mayo River Rail Trail Description

Following a former corridor of the Danville and Western Railway through downtown Stuart, the Mayo River Rail Trail is a paved multi-use path that runs along the Mayo River. Nicknamed "Dick and Willie" (or the less flattering  “Delay and Wait”) the railway included a narrow-gauge line from Danville to Stuart, which was abandoned in 1942.

As the trail winds through the woods and fields, enjoy the scenic views of the Mayo River. With its smooth and level asphalt surface, the trail is accessible for those using mobility aids or families with strollers. Pets are welcome, provided they remain on a leash.

Look for the Trail H.A.N.D.S. sculptures near the middle of the trail, which was made by a local artist as part of Patrick County's project to highlight the area's natural resources. There is also a short spur trail that leads a local assisted living center. At the end of the trail, there is a kiosk with information about Bull Mountain and a telescope to get a better view of the mountain. 

Parking and Trail Access

Parking lots can be found by the northwest end of the trail at 108 Commerce St. About half a mile down the trail, there is an additional parking lot located at 636 Commerce St. This parking lot can be accessed from Commerce St via a long driveway and has 1 accessible space.
