Great park for biking or walking - you can easily access the bridge within walking distance if not biking the whole park from the River Road lot ($4 parking fee). Definitely worth a visit if in the area. Park staff were very friendly and informative.

this relatively new state park is built along the abandoned right-of-way of the old South Side Railroad. The state has done a good job with signs and other facilities with a dozen parking access points. The highlight is probably the old High Bridge, which is...More

There are actually many access points to the trail but definitely two closest to the bridge on either side. Thank you for sharing your experience in a review. I hope you will be able to come back and enjoy more of the trail.

Hop on the beginning of the trail in Burkeville and head west towards Rice, then on to Farmville where you can access High Bridge State Park. Crossing High Bridge is amazing, especially after learning the history of the bridge itself. The entire 3- mile trail...More

High Bridge Trail State Park is well maintained, beautiful and historical. When you visit, if you don't have a lot of time, use the Paradise entrance! When you enter via Paradise there is small parking fee ($3 I think). One of the best places to...More

I have ridden this trail three times now and enjoyed it each time. The path is crushed stone and plenty wide enough for two riding a bike abreast. The elevation is essentially flat, so appropriate for beginner bikers. We like to start in Farmville proper,...More
