Trail Description
About this trail
Built as a walking trail, this is a decent trail for a good ride after work. There are 6 different access points across Roanoke Rapids and Weldon, and some amazing views of the Roanoke River, Roanoke Canal Aqueduct remnants, and plenty of wildlife to be seen during early mornings or late evenings. Not too technical, but there are some fairly tight squeezes between mile 3.3-6.1 that make ya feel as if you may fall into the woods. Plenty of roots along the path. Mostly hardpack. Some loose sand, dirt , and some crush-n-run gravel here and there. Couple of wooden bridges, and some steps, but there are side paths beside the stairs for riders at most points.

Review: Pretty pedestrian, however there are some pretty good climbs that are not blocked off if you veer off the trail a bit. It's very scenic, being right by the Roanoke River. It's very well maintained, and a good 15 mile ride if you ride from the dam to the falls and back.
