Dismal Swamp Canal Trail


This is one of my favorite places to ride. The city blocked off 8 miles of road and turned it in a park. Cycling, running, horseback riding are all welcome. The trail runs alongside the dismal swamp canal so the scenery is beautiful. I normally park 3 miles from the entrance to a round trip ride is 22 miles.
