Description

The New River Trail is a hard packed gravel doubletrack that follows the old route of the North Carolina Branch of the Norfolk & Western Railroad from Galax to Pulaski.

Along the trail, you'll pass over several old railroad trusses and under two tunnels. There are several access points and restrooms along the trail. Be cautious as the trail is shared with other hikers, runners, cyclists, and horseback riders.

If you are interested in touring/backpacking, the state park offers four primitive campgrounds: Cliffview, Millrace, Baker Island and Double Shoals. For accurate information on each campground visit the Virginia State Parks website.
