Features -none-

Family Friendly This is an easily-traveled and lightly trafficked doubletrack for most if its length.

Description

This little-used trail connects Glade Spring to Saltville as it follows the historic Norfolk and Western Rail Spur. This trail passes through pristine woodlands and picturesque farmland along the way. It's an easy ride that's perfect for the whole family.

The only downside is that for a small distance, in the community of Plasterco, it follows the highway due to a mine collapse several years ago that closed the adjacent portion of rail line.
