This is a fantastic trail system for walking or biking. There is a bike barn nearby for you to " borrow" a bike if you need to. About 1/2 of the trail is shaded making it great!

Parents & kids all rode bikes on this trail. Trail is beautiful & well maintained. I wish it was longer, maybe eventually!

My husband and I were traveling with our two dogs. We were looking for something to do with them. This was ideal! Who would have expected such a beautiful trail in downtown Martinsville. Get out and walk the trail!

The Dick & Willie is a great trail for those wanting to get some miles in without running around in circles at a track. If you do the whole thing-to include spurs you can get approximately 10 miles. It is paved which is nice, 4...More
