This is an easy trail with great scenery from big river to woodland serenity. It is a beginners trail. A nice little loop trail. It starts out on a well manicured, wide trail running along the York River on the left and passing a lake on the right. Then it heads into the woods for about a half mile and comes out on the park road near the renta office. It has big river views and quiet woodland.

It was a beautiful day for a walk. For a short beginners trail, this trail has a lot to offer. From big river to quiet woods. You walk past a fishing lake and a little furthur down you come to a side trail to Fossil Beach.
