A beautiful walk along the York River bluffs. If you are interested in taking a fossil home, check with the park rangers. This trail follows the York River most of the way. At one point you are between the river and a lake. There is a lookout right before the trail drops down to the beach.

A beautiful trail with veiws most of the way. And you wind up on a beach. You pass by a fresh water fishing lake.
