We've come up here a few times, mainly for the biking. The bike trail runs for 50+ miles, but there are several points where you can get access to start your trip. Parking is free at some spots, but a $5 fee at others, but well worth it.The area is just beautiful with the river, cliffs, rolling farmland and wildlife. The bike trial is kept in great shape, and is pretty dang level with only maybe a 10% grade in some spots. The New River also offers great kayaking and fishing, as well as some horseback riding opportunities.
They are working on the completion of a bed & breakfast at Foster Falls, but we usually stay in Hillsville or Galax. There are also cabin rentals available. One thing you need to remember when you bike is that if you are planning on going 20+ miles like we do, is to take at least a couple of bottles of water with you,as the only places to get something to drink that we've found so far are at the Foster Falls Park and the low water bridge close to the town of Fries, where there is a small store. The first time we hit this trail was on a humid 85+ degree day and I took 1 bottle of water. After about 25 miles of a 30 mile trip, I became dehydrated was cramping badly for the last 5 miles.
