The Huckleberry Trail is one of the best kept secrets in Blacksburg, in my opinion. Honestly.

And it’s well used – I know a woman in her 80’s who walks 5 miles on the trail every day. I have a former client who rides it to work. And daily you’ll see walkers/joggers/speed demons out logging miles. Now, it’s getting even better.
The Huckleberry Trail is to be expanded even further. This time, with a loop trail:
