“loved the walk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Nice oasis in the middle of a city that has seen better days. The trail was well used by locals so felt like it was a safe walk.

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

A great family outing. Very enjoyable and relaxing. You can walk or ride your bike. Lots of shade toward the Dan Daniels and Angler's Park side. Danville continues to add to it. It is currently 8.5 miles of paved trail. It is relatively flat and easy to do. There are parks, bathrooms, restaurants, historic sites, old bridges, and small waterfalls. It is very scenic. You are in view of the river for most of the trail. You can see lots of song birds, geese, ducks, blue herons, and sunning turtles. Several local restaurants easily accessible from downtown and Riverside Drive. Chain restaurants on Riverside Drive. There are picnic tables at different locations. There are several locations to get on from either side of the river. You can start in a park or behind a restaurant or hotel. There are also mountain bike trails and a boat launch for you to put in your canoe or kayak. Lots of possibilities to have a great day. Use it for exercise or for fun. Either way you will have a great experience.

“Trail is a treasure.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I regularly walk and bike on trail. The scenery and wildlife on and along the river is incredible. Trail is absolutely safe and while there are a lot of people utilizing, never feels crowded. This trail along the Dan River is a highlight of the Danville and Southside Va area.

“Safe and fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We loved the riverwalk trail. Very nice paved trail that is well marked and right along the river. We were amazed at how long it went and loved the bridges along the way. Danville has put a lot of resources into this trail! We enjoyed seeing people of all ages exercising.
