High Bridge Trail State Park...

Biking in an Historic Virginia Area

The 31 mile trail is a linear state park, running on an old rail bed of the Norfolk Southern Railroad. The trail has some easy grades, picnic, parking and restroom/port-a-let facilities. The focal point is the High Bridge, a 2,400 foot long, 60-125 foot high bridge crossing the Appomattox River. The original wooden bridge was built in 1854 and played a role in the Civil War. A steel bridge was built in 1914 with the railroad running until 2004. We rode the trail at High Bridge and the section around Farmville, VA (approximate midpoint of the trail). (Detailed map and photos below.)
