This greenway is the centerpiece of Fauquier County’s trail system. Currently, it runs almost 1 ½ miles in between the center of Old Town Warrenton and Old Meetze Road. It provides a relatively flat paved surface great for joggers, walkers, or bikers and is ADA accessible. The trail crosses two bridges and passes an uncovered old railroad turntable. A short section of rail line has been installed by the Piedmont Railroaders for the retired caboose, that was donated by the Norfolk and Western Railroad. Painstakingly restored by the Piedmont Railroaders, it is indeed a major focal point for this facility. Benches and dog waste stations are available along the trail and a bike rack is located at the 4th Street parking lot for convenient shopping trips in Old Town.
Directions: Parking and trailheads are located at both ends of the Greenway. The Old Town Warrenton trailhead is located at the end of South 4th Street and the Old Meetze trailhead can be reached by taking Meetze Road Southeast and turning on Old Meetze Road. The parking lot is at the end of the road.
