Parked at Green Front right across from the Trail and rode my bike to and across the bridge, and back, about 5 miles each way. Plenty of places to stop and rest along the way, and an actual bathroom about 1 ½ miles from the bridge where the Trail crosses a highway. I had not ridden this far in many... More

I have ridden this trail three times now and enjoyed it each time. The path is crushed stone and plenty wide enough for two riding a bike abreast. The elevation is essentially flat, so appropriate for beginner bikers. We like to start in Farmville proper, bike the five miles to the bridge and then return. While the bridge has spectacular...

Having visited Twin Lakes State Park earlier in the day, it was a short drive to have a look at part of High Bridge Trail. We parked at the River Road car parking lot and walked about a mile to stroll across the bridge. One could only marvel at this engineering masterpiece as well as its historical significance. Having walked... More

We started by visiting downtown Farmville and decided to drive to the state park parking area a few miles away. We hiked one mile to the bridge which was captivating. It is above the trees with some spectacular scenery. Not a venue to miss a must go to in your lifetime. Plus the history of the trail and bridge are... More

Walking on the treetops and endless views with little interruption from modernization in the landscape. Those are favorites. Biking and jogging this trail is a lot of fun.

We parked at (I'm assuming) one of the closest lots to the bridge itself. We walked about a mile from where we were parked to get to the bridge. A good amount of the walk is in the shade until you get to the bridge - once there you will definitely need sunscreen! The bridge itself is quite impressive and... More

Well worth the walk or bike ride to see this very impressive structure. First built in 1852 as a railroad bridge and rebuilt in the early 1900's it was, allegedly at the time, the longest and highest bridge in the world. It is 2400' feet long and 125' above the Appomattox river. We parked easily in Farmville and biked 4.5... More

We rented bikes for 5 from The Outdoor Adventure Store. It was quick and easy to get us all situated and ready to ride. As others have stated- the path is flat, wide and comfortable to ride along. It was an easy ride out to the bridge. Do bring some water along with you and wear sunscreen. Riding across the... More

A group of us just returned from a weekend trip in Farmville, Virginia where we had a great time biking on the trail in High Bridge Trail State Park. The trail is well-maintained and flat and takes you over a beautiful long bridge. The park rangers along the trail were friendly and helpful and it is nice because the trail... More

Pretty close to The Adventure Park at Sandy River down Aspen Hill in Rice Virginia, is a lovely biking (or walking) trail. I mention the Aspen Hill entrance because it's the closest to the bridge (about a third of a mile way) that one sees in all the promotional pictures, the pop up souvenir trailer is located at this entrance...
