One of the best forms of exercise is simply ... WALKING! The City of Reidsville provides its residents with 1.3 miles of walking trails as part of our Greenways system. Reidsville's Jaycee Park Trail is a 1.3-mile path connecting Reidsville Middle and High Schools on South Park Drive with the Jaycee Park recreation area. The Jaycee Trail Extension connects the ballpark to the lower Jaycee Park on South Scales Street. The Sherwood Trail (.78 miles long) has also been completed, but it doesn't stop there. At Lake Reidsville, there is a Hiking/Biking Trail to enjoy. A 2.25-mile extension is being added to nearly three miles of existing trail at the lake.
If you love historic buildings, you can take a walking tour prepared by the City's Historic Preservation Commission. A brochure is available both online or on the second floor of Reidsville City Hall, 230 W. Morehead Street, which provides a brief historical synopsis on the houses on the walking tour.
The City of Reidsville has also created a walking tour of sights and attractions in the downtown area. "Roam Reidsville" offers visitors a tour designed using QR Codes. Visitors can download a free QR Code app on their smartphone and access the historical videos on these sites one of three ways -- by 1) using the "Roam Reidsville" informational cards available at Reidsville City Hall, 230 W. Morehead Street (online version); 2) clicking on the QR Code at the actual site; or 3) clicking on the QR Code on directional signs around the downtown area. We prefer you walk around our downtown area but if you can't make it here, the videos are also available on the City of Reidsville's YouTube Channel. The listing of sites will be changing as additions are made!
