Don't miss this. Absolutely beautiful. We hiked 6 miles of the Greenway, crossed river, saw birds galore, nice statues along the path and so peaceful. Lots of places to rest and facilities available.

The location listed off the highway doesn't take you to a visitors center but the municipal buildings for the town which is outside the center. Has some beautiful streams and connected trails driving by. Tons of nature and animals around. By accident sat down and had started editing lunch next to a 5 foot black snake coiled up on a... More

Nice natural area along the river. Great for walking or bicycling. Long enough for a good workout and speaking of workout, you should try the exercises along the greenway in Roanoke!

Haven't made it all the way yet, but going between the end and up to the hospital is a very pleasant walk, nothing steep. The lack of bars over the water was a little scary but it's awesome to be able to get so close. This is going to be a regular in the summer but be warned there's not... More

The green way is very nice. Great for walking, running, biking etc. People are mostly very courteous and non intrusive. Also it's easy access for fishing. Whether you will catch anything or not I don't know. Go enjoy what your tax $ has provided.

This is a great addition to Roanoke area. Walkers, bikers, strollers, dogs can all be seen on the trail. Want a short walk? Perfect. Wish to go longer? Perfect. I've only done the Greenway in good weather, but if you like to walk in rain or snow go for It! The Greenway is an easy walk for all ages.

Until just recently, and mainly due to the weather, I had the Greenway to ride my bike. From the parking lot next to Black Dog Salvage, I made a daily trek (about 12 miles round trip) to the other side of the Roanoke Water Treatment Plant. There are some areas where it is congested with pedestrian traffic, it's still a... More
