1999 Jim and Sandra Schmid join group horse ride at New River Trail State Park- VA

Sandra and I were in Roanoke, VA to attend the first Governor’s Conference on Greenways and Trails (May 2-3). We participated in one of the conference field trips, a horseback ride at New River Trail State Park. It’s a crushed stone rail-trail perfect for horses. 36 miles of the 57 mile linear park runs along the New River. We started and ended our ride at Foster Falls. They offer guided horse rides along with canoe and bike rentals.
