Trail has been closed from Farmville to bridge for several months. Rather than give you a work around the trail has barriers and is closed. Several people got tickets for continuing through barrier. So sad that law enforcement has to resort to these tactics to...More

Farmville is in a shallow bowl next to the Appomattox River with the High Bridge Trail rising in both directions. It is uphill on a slight but steady grade. Not a bad grade, but one a casual cyclist would notice. So you park Downtown and...More

Saw pictures of this and detoured on the way home to see it. Gorgeous views, easy walk but beware the mosquitoes!! We didn't bring horses this time but the mounting blocks and hitching rails are a great touch.

From the center of town it’s 4 miles away, but it you drive there is a parking area about 1.5 miles away. It’s very peaceful walk, and the view from the bridge is amazing. It’s also interesting just thinking about the history here as well....More

We have closed it a few times due to snow and ice and that has not been often. We always post on the park’s web page when we have to close it.
