Trail marks 10-mile advance on Earth Day
SoVaNow.com / March 19, 2014
Roanoke River Rails to Trails, Inc. will celebrate the latest addition the Tobacco Heritage Trail — a ten-mile stretch from Brodnax to Lawrenceville — on April 22, Earth Day.
Phase III of the hiking-biking trail connects existing segments in Lawrenceville and Brodnax/La Crosse, making for a 17-mile stretch overall — ideal for equestrians, cyclists and long-distance runners, according to the project’s backers.
The ribbon cutting will take place on Earth Day, April 22, at 11:00 a.m. near the Evans Creek Road trailhead in Brodnax. Following the ribbon cutting, a reception will be held in Lawrenceville at Elm Acres, where Brunswick Stew will be served.
The festivities will conclude with an opportunity for walkers, runners, cyclists and equestrians to tour the new trail at 2 p.m.
The Lawrenceville to Brodnax/La Crosse stretch is the longest portion of the converted rail-trail, which as envisioned will traverse an area from Halifax to Brunswick counties. In addition to a two-and-a-half mile segment in South Boston, preparations are under way for a mile-long portion from the Town of Boydton to Prison Road.
