Been biking and walking there many times. Good shady trail in the woods around the lake. Pretty crowded on weekends in nice weather. The trail is sandy/dirt and there are some roots/ washout at some places. Decently wide enough to pass someone. I've seen bikers, walkers, runners, dogs and an assortment of scooters and one wheel bikes. I believe it also doubles as bridle trail or at least it used to. Some hills but not too bad except for the ones right at the parking end of the lake. Glad for my e-bike on those. You can join up right from the trail to the Salem Greenway and skirt by town- although it is not as clean or safe in my opinion.
We went for the first time today to the Reynolds Park location and it was disgusting! There were used condoms, drug paraphernalia & used needles and trash everywhere!! After walking for 10 min we seen 3 piles of dog poop no one picked up as well. Stay away it’s terrible.
The American Tobacco Trail is an excellent trail for bikers, walkers, runners, and horseback riders. I did a bunch of research via YouTube on the trail before I drove the hour to get to it. It was shaded, easy to find, and the trail surfaces were superb and easy to ride.
There were available bathrooms at the trailhead and in different areas along the trail. It was exceptionally busy with the cooler temps so you need to watch out for oncoming traffic (runners, bikes).
If I had to pick something to improve, I would fix two things to make the trail even better. First, the markings as you get into the outskirts of Durham (from the south). We missed the trail marker and had a slight diversion. The other thing I would do to improve this great trail experience would be putting more garbage cans throughout the trail to throw out any trash and especially for folks cleaning up after their dogs (doggie bags). No one wants to carry that for a few miles.
I started at Solite Park and went to the end and back on my mountain bike (around 30 miles) in around 3.5 hours. The ride is very smooth and scenic.
Some things to consider: A lot of the trail is in the sun and I got a little burnt. There are many places to fill up a water bottle (at least in the summer) so water was never an issue. Have a trail map accessible on your phone because there are some spots that are a little confusing.
I did the trail alone starting around noon. Next time if I start earlier in the morning I would like to do the whole thing.
This trail did not disappoint (except it ended). Danville is to be commended!! Smooth well kept pathway! We started at The Danville Farmer’s market, rode the cobblestone streets to the Main Street Plaza, down to the trail which zips along the river back to where we started. Then we went across the trail bridge and followed the trail down river to the end at the airport. The trail is relatively flat until you pass through Angler’s Park! Then you have some real hills to get up!!! We were thankful for assist from our e-bikes. But oh, what a lovely ride!! We followed the trail back to the Farmers market - refilled our water bottles and headed back across the bridge to finish the other side of the trail. This part is lovely even though you are behind business for some of it. And there is one part that is not complete (i.e gravel - though someone painted the big rocks which was very nice!) We road (with some overlap) about 20 miles!! We will be back!
Favorite disc golf course
Very steep section and ends at a fence
We haven’t been on a ton of trails, but this one’s the nicest so far. Lots of flowing river views, plenty of wildlife and a brewery too! You should check it out
I asked for an update and just received this word: "As of right now the trail is completely open. There was some flooding around Sandy Creek earlier this week, which has been cleaned up." email@example.com
This is one of my favorite spots to walk, play pickleball and baseball and have a picnic. Such a wonderful and beautiful park.
Easy, flat trail for enjoyable run or endurance training. Start at Rock Quarry Park on Stadium Drive and run to Trinity Avenue and back for a solid 5 miles. Enjoy.
Nice distance and great surface. Located in the middle of everything. You can ride and enjoy the city all in one day.
