What is the best kept secret in Martinsville-Henry County?

"I enjoy the Dick & Willie Passage Rail Trail and the bicycle loan program on it. I love that you can walk or bike nine miles so close to work and home, yet you can also just relax on a bench to enjoy the natural scenery there." 

Activate's Bike Barn is now open for the season so get out and enjoy a relaxing walk or bike ride today!
