Giles County Trail Center Concept

Giles County Trail Center Concept

Original Post from NRVRC Updates


The New River Valley Regional Commission is excited to partner with Friends of Southwest Virginia and Giles County on the development of a new River/Trail Center.  The project will break ground this Fall on the grounds of historic Mountain Lake property.  The Center is anticipated to serve as a nucleus for information on the myriad of outdoor recreation opportunities and services in Giles County.  Shuttle services will connect visitors to hiking trails, mountain biking systems, and paddling launch locations throughout the County.


A second phase of the project will create a new trail that connects the Center to Mountain Lake Lodge and the peak of Bald Knob.  The Commission is please to support this project by assisting with environmental coordination and other regulatory compliance requirements.  Within the next year or two, this fantastic outdoor recreation asset will be available in the New River Valley!
