These are nice wlaking trails BUT the marker on the AllTrails map is way off mark if you are looking for Staunton River State Park. SRSP is west of Clarksville, VA and is well over an hour by car since you must loop back through South Boston and then back east to the tip of the land between the Dan and Staunton Rivers. It is a beautiful park with lost of amenities. Travel by kayak or canoe is much more efficient and you can easily reach it from Staunton View Park on the north shore. That park is managed by the USACE.
Nice trail with tons of water views and woodland wonder. If you are going out and back on foot it will be a long day. Better go one way and get a ride or take your bike.
