Dodd Creek Trail

Dodd Creek trailhead sign

In October 2016 Dodd Creek Trail, behind the Floyd County Recreation and Parks land, was cleared by Dennis Anderson and a new trail committee from Partnership for Floyd was formed by Doug Thompson, Mike Maslaney and Jane Cundiff.

Much work on the 1.25 mile-long trail has been done, making it easy to hike through the woods and along the creek. The trail begins and ends in the parking lot by the ball fields near the top of the hill at the Recreation Park off Rt. 8 just north of town, across from the Family Dollar Store.

The west side of the trail is an old road that will not need a lot of work. It meanders for a bit above Dodd Creek (Fall 2016).
