Just remember 2 or 3 dollars a person for parking. Nice trails.

Very easy-moderate hike for beginners/day hikers and families. Some is overgrown a little, which could be annoying when wearing shorts. Be cautious of private property lines. Great trail for semi-experienced mountain bikers.

It's a fairly decent trail that looks to be cleared frequently. Not very busy, only ran into 2 groups on labor day. Trail is very thin, can't have anyone beside you. The trail also isn't very flat, and your feet are often at different elevations to be balanced. Also 2-3 dollars a person depending on the day.

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.

Beautiful year round. There are miles and miles of super fun trails (much more than 14.6 mi).
