New trail to open soon

South Boston NewsSouth Boston News
The old railroad bed has been repurposed as a recreation trail for walking, running, bike riding and horseback riding for nearly two and a half miles between the site of the old Halifax Cotton Mill and Berry Hill Resort. At Berry Hill, it links with a private path near that plantation’s Diamond Hill Cemetery, where countless enslaved people are buried in unmarked graves. The trail is expected to open officially later this month after an inspection. The Dan River Rails to Trails is one piece of the larger Tobacco Heritage Trail, planned to network eventually throughout Southern Virginia. Above, Larry Burnett Jr., Kenneth Elixson and Josh Burnett on Wednesday finished this bridge over Poplar Creek to link the Cotton Mill Park with the main Rail Trail running 2.4 miles out to Berry Hill Resort. The multi-use path features sunny stretches, shady stretches, river views and a duck pond named in memory of the late Biggy Hunt.
