“We are still working on these to span the valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

One of our best places to get out and see the small Roanoke river and enjoy the outdoors. Best for walking and running. Little tight fro prime time cycling. Early mornings are great. Hopefully before I too old they will finish the Greenway from Salem to Vinton and truly run the length of the valley for almost 30 miles.

“Biking on the Greenway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Great bike path along the river . Nicely maintained and pretty. We biked around eight miles on an easy trail which was mainly flat.

“Well Done!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

The greenway is well done, especially considering ir was done by the government! Seems like every time we use it, there are more places to dine.

“Great, just not enough of it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Great to just walk and enjoy. Just have to be careful with those discourteous people on bicycles and sometimes runner, but then it is for everyone. Just share it for all.

“Good Now. Will be Great in the Future”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

The Greenway is a great addition to the revitalization of Roanoke with good bikeways, athletic fields, and walking. Yes, do watch out for the cyclists. Roanoke is still getting used to this new thing and courtesy and care for pedestrians still needs some work. New housing, more mature plantings, and more exercise locations will happen over the years.

The vistas combine rivers, tall trees,the hills surrounding Roanoke and factories, railroad tracks, and the backyards of unattractive houses. It is an urbanscape - get used to it.
