Family Friendly Not too difficult and walking is acceptable.

This is a popular hiking trail, so ride with care and be prepared to yield.

Description

Ride this gem of an urban trail before the view is gone (adjacent property east of the first section is pending sale). It's a great little urban outing, suitable for a cycle-cross or even an aggressive hybrid bike. Something that you can take a non-cyclist friend to, or even introduce a roadie to some easy trails. It can also be used as a shortcut between Patrick Henry High School and Virginia Western Community College.

From the west, things start with a gravel greenway that wraps around the high school and its practice fields, before entering the first wooded area of singletrack. Stay to the right, but feel free to explore. There are quite a few good loops to the left that are used by the PH cross country team (hint - turn left at the park bench, then stay left when you come out in a field behind the office. You'll eventually find yourself back on the trails. Plus, since this is really land locked, it's hard to get too lost).

Continuing on this trail you'll eventually come out in a residential section and cross Brambleton Ave, before turning left and going down a long gravel trail. This trail is at times deep gravel and does shift around a bit due to it being in a flood zone. Once you enter the woods again, a sharp left then right awaits you. Be prepared for a very steep climb for 20' after you make the left. It's not uncommon to have to walk this section unless you are totally awesome.

At the top, you'll again transition into a gravel greenway, wrapping around two schools and through a playground, before ending the trail right at Colonial Avenue.
