From I-64, take the Croaker exit (231B), go north one mile on rt 607 (Croaker Road). Turn right and go one mile and a half on rt. 606 (Riverview Road).
Yeah, nice run did the creek loop North, pretty good hills
Then did the river section South and it was nice and flat
Nice nature center and camp store.
A beautiful park with views along river, beaches and plenty of miles to hike for the day.
I love this park and have been here many times.
Beautiful views and nice easy trails. Very well maintained park facilities too!
If you love York River State Park, you have probably done this one.
I've run these trails 3 times now. If you want it to yourself then go early in the morning. There's usually plenty of shells to find on the beach. It is kept up very well, however the last time I went there was a tree down covering one of the trails. If you go when it is humid outside then be sure to bring bug spray. The best part in my opinion is how secluded it is. Will be going back this summer to run.
The Taskinas Trail was great, beautiful views throughout the trail. Looking forward to exploring more of the park.
