Very nice place with many many trails. They charge $2.00 per person but worth it for the upkeep on this beautiful place!

A great place to get lost in the woods with minimal planning. Also connects to the Greenway which goes South over Bush Mountain, crosses under 81, and takes you to Hollins University. Would like to see that Greenway mapped out.

Fun place to hike. Parking costs $2 and there was a nice meandering path through the woods to follow. Not a ton of varying terrain on the path we took (Hotel).

Excellent trail system. 45 miles of completed trails with more planned. I have ridden about 50% of the completed trails on horseback. The trails consist of some mountain paths and some gravel roads.
