Huckleberry Trail
Huckleberry Trail under constructionAbout the Trail
The Huckleberry Trail is an asphalt-paved bike / pedestrian path. The trail currently runs from the Blacksburg Public Library to the New River Mall.

There are distance markers every half-mile. At 2.83 miles it crosses the road to Warm Hearth, at 3.43 miles it crosses Hightop, and at 3.9 it crosses Merrimac. The total distance from the Blacksburg Public Library to the New River Mall is 5.762 miles.

Benches & Parking
There are benches spaced along the trail where you can rest and enjoy the scenery. Parking is available at both ends, as well as near Warm Hearth and the Hightop and Merrimac crossings.

Huckleberry Trail Extension
Plans are in the works to extend the trail to the Hethwood Community, Blacksburg’s Gateway Park, the Christiansburg Recreation Center, and the New River State Trail. The Huckleberry Trail also received a bit of an extension, thanks to a partnership between Friends of the Huckleberry and the Town.

With materials provided by friends and labor donated in-kind by the Town, the trail was extended just over .4 miles (2150 feet) from the former trailhead near Sears at the New River Valley Mall to Route 114 / Peppers Ferry Road. Future plans call for the trail's extension across Route 114 and farther into the Town.
