Lick Run Greenway

Lick Run Greenway begins in the heart of downtown Roanoke and extends uninterrupted to Huff Lane Park. There is an additional section of greenway in Countryside Park.
This greenway can be completed within a few hours. There are many fine stopping points along the way. The map provided shows the complete trail from Hotel Roanoke to Valley View Mall. Many fine shopping opportunities await, including Target, Best Buy, Barnes and Noble, and even a Starbucks.
This is a mostly flat, well marked trail. There are many roads to be crossed along the way, but for the most part, it is a nice uninterrupted spot to take a stroll. The beginning and the end sections are well lit. However, be aware that the middle two miles are not lit by artificial lights. Most of the trail follows a lovely stream. There is a wonderful view of Mill Mountain and the Mill Mountain Star about halfway along the greenway.
