Fluvanna Heritage Trail is a 4.1 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Palmyra, Virginia that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until November. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash. The trail is hilly with lots of ups and downs. There are benches along the trail for rest stops. Flush toilets are available at the trailhead and non-flush at the dog park (turn around point). Total distance: 6.4 miles. Distances of 8.2 and 7.3 miles are also possible if the group chooses.
The Cycle North Carolina Coastal Ride offers participants and their families a fun-filled 3-day weekend while both on and off the bike. Start your day by hopping on your bike and exploring one of the many fully supported routes this ride has to offer. Each day will feature a variety of routes ranging anywhere from 5 miles to 100 miles. The flat roads and minimal traffic counts will allow you to fully experience all of the sights and sounds of the Oriental area including an abundance of coastal wildlife and many historic sites that are deeply rooted to the local communities. This small sailing town tends to move at its own pace, which is usually dictated by which way the wind is blowing. With fantastic museums, beautiful art galleries, great shopping and a simply gorgeous waterfront, there will be plenty for you to do while off the bike in Oriental. Those that are feeling adventurous can take a kayak expedition or do a little sailing while those looking to relax might prefer to check out the local shops or pull up a deck chair and enjoy the scenery. And don't forget to check out the live music going on each night at multiple locations in the town. Notes: 1. You must register at https://ncsports.org/event/cyclenc_coastal_ride/. Fees increase after 10/30/2019. 2. Indoor or outdoor camping is included with the registration. I plan to camp indoors.
