My husband and I were traveling with our two dogs. We were looking for something to do with them. This was ideal! Who would have expected such a beautiful trail in downtown Martinsville. Get out and walk the trail!

The 4.5 mile paved trail is a beautiful retreat from the day to day. It is fairly level for the light walkers and bikers. There are plenty of resting spots along the way. The people are always friendly. There are many access points which makes it easy to access. After learning the sections of the trail, you can easily determine... More

The city of Martinsville should be extremely proud of these trails. What a great way of using old, unused railroad tracks. Even for someone who grew up here or who lived here all their life, this gives you a very unique perspective on the town.

The Dick & Willie is a great trail for those wanting to get some miles in without running around in circles at a track. If you do the whole thing-to include spurs you can get approximately 10 miles. It is paved which is nice, 4 restrooms available along trail-3 portapotties and 1 actual bathroom with toilets/sinks. During the summer months... More

When I was a child my brother and I used to play on the railroad tracks that one day became the Dick & Willie Trail. This is a paved walking trail that spans portions of Martinsville & Henry County Va. The city/county has really made this trail a beautiful addition to our area. Benches, shrubbery, bike rental, water fountains ,... More

Took my dos running on the path. It was well maintained, safe and beautiful. Spent about an hour here. What a gem of a trail with a funny name :-)
