“The advanced loop of the Riverwalk trail system, this trail is fairly technical with many roots.”
— Vinnie Connors
close for 24 hours after rain.
The Riverwalk Blue Loop starts at the one mile mark of the Piedmont Medical Center Trail
on the right shortly after the trail map kiosk. After 0.1 mile take a left to follow the blue trail as Riverwalk Green Loop
is the right option.
After another 0.1 mile, the trail reconnects with the Riverwalk Green Loop
and continues left for 1/4 mile. The blue loop continues as the left option and the Riverwalk Green Loop
continues on to the right. This section is the most technical part of the ride with lots of roots to navigate and some fairly tough climbs.
The trail crosses over the Green Loop Access Road
and climbs to its highest point of the ride before descending to the southern part of the trail. The trail crosses over the Riverwalk Green Loop
two more times before reconnecting with it at the 4.25 mile mark. After 1/4 mile the trail crosses the Green Loop Access Road
again and blue loop splits off to the left for a short 0.1 mile stretch.
After 0.2 mile on the Riverwalk Green Loop
, the blue loop splits off to the left and after one last climb, descends back to the start of the trail at the Piedmont Medical Center Trail
