This is a nice trail in York River State Park. I have hiked this trail several times but the location is wrong. I will suggest an edit.
I really liked this trail, it wasn't hard to complete at all. There's lots of tree coverage to be had and a ton of intersecting bike paths along the way. Once you get to the end, you have the option of hiking down to the York River. I highly recommend it. It's like you own little private beach. When I arrived, it was low tide so I was able to walk along the shore line all the way until the marsh met the water. Very nice trail.
