Greenways & Trails
More of a walker than a team sport player? Reidsville's Jaycee Park Trail is a 1.1-mile path connecting Reidsville Middle School and Reidsville High School on South Park Drive with the Jaycee Park recreation area. The Jaycee Trail Extension connects the Jaycee Ball Park recreation area to the lower Jaycee Park on South Scales Street. The entire trail is 1.3 miles long. (Map of Jaycee Park Trail). The Sherwood Trail is also complete. (Map of Sherwood Trail). Lake Reidsville also offers a nearly mile-long hiking and biking trail. This trail, located across the street from the main park entrance, gives bike enthusiasts a good workout, and hikers a change of venue from other City greenways. (Map of the Hiking/Biking Trail). This trail is also phase one of the Lake Reidsville trails system with more to come.  Update-Phase two has now been completed inside the park that includes a .6 mile trail loop.  Phase three has been started and is a trail that will loop around Lake Reidsville.
