    Thank you for contact us, Dennis. The trail does go from Chase City to Lawrenceville, however; most of this would be on what would be called the Virginia Scenic Byway, meaning not an off road trail. The VA Scenic Byway runs on Route 47 from Chase City to South Hill. I suggest you view the map on the website to get a better perspective of planning a trip.

    I hope that helps!
    Happy Trails~

    Does this trail run continuous from Chase City to Lawrenceville?

    My wife and I rode our mountain bikes on the trail from the small parking lot on South street in Lawrenceville to Grandy road. Very scenic and beautiful crushed stone trail. Lots of picnic tables and bathrooms. They did a nice job building this trail and its bridges. Be aware that a small portion of the trail is closed during deer hunting season ( Nov to Jan) from Evans Creek road to the Meherrin river bridge. We look forward to returning to ride it again in February. It was well worth the 1 hour drive to get there.

    2015! I had the opportunity to ride much of the trail from Lacrosse to Lawrenceville this summer. I just love this trail. It is fairly flat riding with a section paved from Lacrosse. Each time I rode I hardly saw others however I could tell horse riders had been also enjoying the trail. It would be excellent if they could be courteous and clean up behind their animals. I want to comment that the trails condition was excellent on my rides. Parking is free at trail heads! I also ride some of the state park trails and parking is 3$. Thank you THT for helping our community.

    October 27, 2013 The Lacrosse to Broadnax trail has been paved and looks complete. Have used the trail several times, and I absolutely love it. This is a relatively unknown treasure, has very little traffic. The Broadnax to Lawrenceville trail is almost complete, and we biked from Lacrosse to within a couple of miles of Lawrenceville this past weekend (we did not interfere with construction personnel). What a ride. This is absolutely beautiful country, and a fantastic trail. I am really excited to have this trail in our community. What an asset!!!!

    I was in South Hill for two weeks in July 2013 and found the trail on the web and decided to explore it.

    The trail is under construction but ride-able. I rode the trail 4 times while in town. I rode the section from LaCross east past Brodnax. I found the experience very nice and peaceful. The trail surface is not ready for skinny tires since there are sections that are still soft. It must be ridden with a wider tire bike like a mountain bike or a trail bike. I enjoyed the fact that it is largely un-used and un-discovered. I rode on this trail for 5 hours and only saw one other person on a bike. I am sure I only saw a dozen people total while riding. The two bridges east of Brodnax are nearly finished but look very nice. I cannot wait to see what they look like when finished.

    My parents would occasionally take myself and my three brothers on walks up the tracks on Saturday or Sunday evening strolls when I was a child. This was in the mid to late 70s and 80s so the line was still active which meant that we had to occasionally step aside to allow a freight train to pass. We would wave at the engineer, and …more

    This is an awesome trail! I’m visiting from the State of Oregon and found this accidentally online. I started it from Lawrenceville and went just under the bridge of Grandy Rd. I met up with a local there and had a great time conversing while hiking. Thanks all for this trail!

    I drove down to La Crosse Sunday and biked the 4 or so open miles of the THT and then added on about 25 more in a loop around the area returning to La Crosse. I can’t wait for more sections to be completed which will open all kinds of cycling possibilities in the area…good job!

    As a long-time bike rider, I was delighted to see this new trail. It is great for riding with kids, and the surface is OK to support a road bike. The trail is well maintained.
