New Tinker Creek Greenway extension

The new portion of the Greenway, linking Tinker Creek in Vinton to the Roanoke Greenway is now open.

You quickly leave traffic sounds behind and are surrounded by bird calls (which I could identify if I were a decent Master Naturalist!)
It's a beautiful little slice of nature right off the highway.  Parts of the trail loop around holding ponds for the water treatment facility in Roanoke so it's supposed to be a great place to spot water fowl.

It can get pretty steep, whether walking or biking!
