A great trail for the more experenced rail rider, this one had alot of various type of terrain to go over. The humps and dips in this trail make it fun and the tight and leafy streches make it a trail to pay attention on. I had a blast and will ride this again. I went to the railroad bridge that is the upper railroad rapid on the river and the fallen roadway there made for an interesting climb with the bike. Best bet is to stop there and walk over to the bridge cause the railway there is still active but you can catch some good views of rafters going under the bridge. I rode this trail from the parking lot at Thurmond and then rode out the road to the bridge at Cliffrock and back for the total of 20 miles. Beautiful views and seclusion is the mark of this trail.
