Mountain Biking Centerville Power Lines

***   Add a review
#202 of 283 mountain bike trails in Virginia
#10173 in the world

Single track (some paved paths) with a couple of good downhills and climbs. A couple of stream crossings. This trail is nothing spectacular! I would not waste your time ridding this trail. I will NOT ride again.

Getting there
From I-66 Take exit 53, heading south on Sulley Road (Route 28). Sulley Road changes to Centerville Road across Lee Highway (US Route 29). Follow Centerville Road for about 2 miles, then turn left into the Centerville Elementary School parking lot. Follow the side walk path back to main road and go left (do not cross intersection) continue about 100 feet and you will see the trail on your left.

    Some obstacles. Large parts are so overgrown that you can't find the trail.

    Really just xc trail for some fun be careful under power lines if you touch metal on your bike you get a very small shock but it just feels like your bike is vibrating

    Mostly paved 8-10 ft wide. Some gravel trails. Excellent for beginners.

    Riding on a neglected trail like this really makes you appreciate good trails. Many parts did not have a visible path, with overgrowth of grass and plants present. Nothing scenic about power lines, either. The only fun parts were the rare and few stream/puddle crossings. This trail could be so much better, even decent if maintained.

    Its a great beginner trail, as long as you stay on the 'beaten trail'. I decided to take less traveled trails, which I didn't enjoy. I liked this trail and will ride it again until I am a better biker. You can go fast, there are some technical spots. Not a lot of people of this trail at all, I only saw two other people, so it's a quiet ride and won't have to worry about running into other people.

    These are decent trails for when you have a limited amount of time - good afterwork ride. There are some good downhills in areas and it does alot with limited elevation change. The trails snake between various neighborhoods, combination of singletrack, doubletrack, and you do have to opt on the pavement for part of the loop to connect back up with the powerline swath. I've ridden this trail in both summer and winter and the tread is pretty consistent.

    Although the trail does rely on some paved trail (along a road) there are some excellent technical decents. In addition, at the tail end of the loop, there is a perfect river to take dive into.
