Falling Creek Trails - Trail, Bedford, Virginia

DESCRIPTION

Falling Creek Park is the first of four planned regional parks being built in Bedford County. The park is located approximately 1 mile from US Rt. 460 on Falling Creek Rd. behind the Bedford County Nursing Home. The trail network in the park is designed for hiking, mountain biking and trail running and at present totals 7 miles. The trails vary in difficulty from easy to advanced and there is a skills developing area that features a 20' “skinny” log to ride and a 16' long “teeter totter”. There are more skill building features in the works.
Falling Creek Park is host to the annual Virginia DeRailer Series Mountain Bike Race Series race #4. Also, the park has a new cross country running course that is marked with BLUE arrows and is the new home to the Liberty High School cross country team for practices and home meets.
At Falling Creek Park you will find other amenities such as picnic shelters, charcoal grills, children’s playground and a series of fitness stations all located around the 1/3 mile paved walking path. So bring your bike, your family and your picnic basket and enjoy the beauty of Bedford County’s first public park!

Awesome trails. Nicely maintained by Kenny, the trail manager. Check out the website for maps, current trail info, even videos of the trails. Uncrowded, great variety and well marked. Some technical, but mostly just a fun ride.

My favorite (only about half of the network): Sleepy Hollow to The Ledge to White Rock Trail to Slickrock to Race Way to Creekside, right over the bridge (where you can see the field) and right on Bluebird back to Sleepy Hollow (park at the lower parking area and the trail is right there at the end of the road)

Enjoyable trails that make good use of the limited forest space available at the park. This track is old farm land so there is some field riding between the trails.

No big climbs or drops but a lot of twisting, turning and bump hoping.

What makes this place an interesting stop for biking is the developing "skills" section. Currently there is a pump track oval, teeter-toter and two log bridges set up in one of the fields next to the trails. I was fortunate enough to talk to the parks department employee responsible foe the trails and he told me they plan on expanding the skills area to include elevated trails.

This trail has a little bit of everything to offer. It has difficult long climbs and technical areas. I always get a great workout when riding this trail.
