We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Thursday, November 14, 2019.
Hike one of Virginia State Park's newest park near Farmville. This new rail-to-trail park spans 31 miles from Pamplin City to Burkeville and has numerous trailheads. We will stroll an easy two miles (round trip) to the high bridge which spans 2400 feet and is 160 feet above the Appomattox river. The bridge, built in 1853, was part of the South Side Railroad, an old rail line from Petersburg to Lynchburg. Afterward, have lunch at a local eatery in Farmville, and then hike another 1-mile section near downtown. Total hiking distance is an easy, flat three miles.
