From Lone Ash to Allisonia is a 6.4 mile, easy, slight uphill gradient with no designated parking areas available at either trailhead. Parking may be found on nearby streets near both trailheads and at several points along the route. Heading from Lone Ash toward Pulaski you will notice the trail begins to climb. The engineers who laid out the former railroad bed that is now the trail, had to begin planning for the change in elevation at Pulaski. As a result you will notice the trail travels higher above the waters of the New River, and across increasingly longer and higher bridges or trestles. At Island Creek the trail soars across Big Reed Trestle, a seven hundred foot long structure that features spectacular views of the surrounding area.
