Great paved trail. Bikes, scooters, skateboards are welcome. Pavement is pristine. You are in or near the city, but it is mostly quiet and serene on the trail. A little hilly, great workout but not hard and benches for breaks are scattered along the trail.

This is a fantastic trail system for walking or biking. There is a bike barn nearby for you to " borrow" a bike if you need to. About 1/2 of the trail is shaded making it great!

My husband and I were traveling with our two dogs. We were looking for something to do with them. This was ideal! Who would have expected such a beautiful trail in downtown Martinsville. Get out and walk the trail!

The city of Martinsville should be extremely proud of these trails. What a great way of using old, unused railroad tracks. Even for someone who grew up here or who lived here all their life, this gives you a very unique perspective on the town.
