dogs on leash
I love the history of this trail. Only had enough time to cover four miles before I had to turn around. I would rate it as moderate but definitely broke a sweat on a cool day. Not a lot of views because of trees but I want to go back in the spring when the mountain laurel are in full bloom!
We enjoyed this trail on Sunday! Hiked to lake Powhatan, even though it's more of a pond, it's beautiful and has some good fishing and this section below the lake is hatchery supported all the way down until you reach the arboretum where there is no fishing. You can make this hike as short or as long as you like. Heavily trafficked area but other than that we enjoyed it and will be going again soon!
Beautiful trail but that is not something you will enjoy if you are out of shape. Going clock wise is straight up 100 degrees and humid. Better suited to bikers going counter clockwise. Bring rain gear we got soaked. Water but no falls and no views. This is a bike trail. Ccw is maybe better Gradual incline and a steep decline. Good luck. FML. Going to get beer
