This ride's general location is 10 miles southeast of Wise. Scenery includes the scenic Guest River as it flows through a magnificent sandstone gorge. Converting a railroad bed to a recreational trail provides a smooth trail for non-motorized users but, less obviously, it also provides access to otherwise inaccessible settings of incredible natural beauty. This is certainly the case with the Guest River Trail. Families and beginning riders will enjoy this ride, especially the downhill on the way to the Clinch.

Great trail for walking or biking. Nice scenery with a nice wide trail. Coming back out of the trail is quite a climb though. most of it is uphill.
