From the starting line at High Bridge State Park Plaza in Farmville, runners head northeast along the High Bridge Trail, the former railroad bed that’s been converted to a wide and mostly flat crushed limestone trail for runners, walkers, bikers and hikers. Along the out-and-back route, runners will cross the spectacular High Bridge, the 2,400-ft.-long footbridge that stands some 125 feet over the Appomattox River, which offer gorgeous views of the river and the trees below.
