The Tobacco Heritage Trail is an ambitious project that will eventually link Brunswick, Charlotte, Halifax, Lunenburg and Mecklenburg counties with 174 miles of transportation and recreation corridors. Using abandoned rail beds, bridges, rights of way and state roadways, the planned system will provide a network to boost transportation, tourism and economic development in rural, historic southern Virginia. The 70-mile phase from Lawrenceville to Clarksville is under active development. The La Crosse Tobacco Heritage Trail is relatively short, only about 3.3 miles, and stretches between the small towns of La Crosse and Brodnax, however it is a beautifully developed section of trail, most of which is paved.
The first section of the Tobacco Heritage Trail was officially opened in September 2005.
