This trail, constructed on the abandonded Virginia Blue Ridge Railway bed, begins at the Piney River Depot in Nelson County and follows the Piney River 1.8 miles. It crosses into Amherst County at Roses Mill and continues another 3 miles. The trail meanders through the countryside affording views of rolling hills and farms as well as the river. Little evidence of civilization meets the eye. Wildlife and wildflowers are abundant and the trail provides a safe, aesthetically pleasing walking, biking or horseback riding experience.
