This is an easy trail with multiple areas to start or stop along the Roanoke river. Mostly flat with some hills. A lot of people bike the trail. It is dog friendly. There are places to fish along the trail. I have also taken my kayak from start to finish which is nice. There are some class1 or 2 rapids when the river is low at the very end in Weldon. It can be busy during nice weekend days.

We drove it. There were long stretches without a river view punctuated by side roads down to the river.

We did the best we could to follow the river by road. I want to come back and canoe/camp it.
