Mountain Biking High Bridge Trail

***   Add a review
#146 of 300 mountain bike trails in Virginia
#5,426 in the world

This is an old abandon railroad bed, that was taken over by the Virginia State Park system and converted into a beautiful hike, bike, and horse, trail. It goes over the Appomattox River and over the (hence the name) High Bridge.

    This is a state park in Farmville,VA that has a bridge pictured over the Appomatox river. There is a ranger under an enviroshade and the bridge is a mile away. The trail is an old rail bed full of light grey pea gravel. It is incredibly straight and boring after a while. See the bridge, ride to Farmville and get a bite to eat. There were a few miles of single track off between Farmville and Tuttle but they were quite easy as well.

    Way more technical than most of Pocahontas, but too short. There is more. There's a loop under high bridge with a couple step bridges, if it's not flooded.

    I drove out to Farmville and rode the High Bridge Trail. It's not exactly, you know, a MTB trail... It's more of a double track, abandon railroad bed, that was converted by the Virginia State Park system and made into a hiking, biking, and horse, trail. It is incredibly easy, totally flat, and has real small crushed gravel, pea gravel, and packed sand, for a base. It may be considered totally lame or whatever, but, the scenery is beautiful from up on the High Bridge!
