Wonderful trail with picture taking opportunities every few feet (that gave me a reason to quit riding). Flat well maintained trail. We got on in Fries Va and turned around at the Galax split, after crossing the train tressel. Lots of fun and an easy ride for just about anyone. We saw someone in a golf cart riding on the trail, which I thought was a good idea for someone who could not walk or bike the trail. It is a beauty that should be enjoyed by everyone.
Quite simply put I love this trail. Overall this trail is flat; so flat that coasting is not an option. This makes this trail as difficult areobic trail as you want to make it. Couple that with the many access points along the way and the trail is never the same ride twice. If you go take everything you will need for a wilderness ride. Though you may be close to civilization, it is still a long way out if your 10 miles away from your car and you break down. Best of all this is a great ride rain or shine; bad weather is no excuse for missing a good ride. There are changing booths here and there so you can shed the wet and muddy for the clean and dry.
Beautiful trail for the family outing. Smooth old rail bed, perfect for a family cruise. Terrain is fairly level with some awesome views of the lake. You will cross several old train tretles along the way. Enjoy!
