Trail Programming

Roanoke Parks and Recreation takes pride in offering trail programming to its citizens.  Recently voted “Best Trail Town” by readers of Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine, Roanoke is a true destination for trail enthusiasts. The City of Roanoke has 5 different parks that have natural surface trails in them with various uses–hiking, biking, and horseback riding. With these trails also come the opportunity to hold programs for the greater outdoor recreation community to enjoy the resources of our valley.
