trail locations for Virginia

Very short and easy, I don't know if it even counts as a "hike." The trail is paved and has little elevation change the entire way. The view is fantastic, but it is very populated, so expect to see other people. There are also some small unofficial trails if you have kids/teens that want to be more adventurous, but it's a fairly small area.

it's quite but small... one of the trails ended right at the back property of the Buffington House, a colonial era home that is supposedly haunted (if you're into that sort of the thing). Nice place to get a quick workout in.

Quiet, short trail, nice place to get a quick outdoor work out in. One of the trails ends right on the back property of the Buffington House which is a colonial era home and worth a quick visit as well.

We didn't get to the summit, but the gains/losses in elevation were challenging. We brought our great dane and he did great!

This is a moderately strenuous hike that is almost entirely uphill to the top. The upper half of the trail is pretty much a rock climb. The path is well-defined and there are steps made out of rocks, but it's challenging. The view from the top is a magnificent view of the valley below depending on the weather.

So fun! Wear good shoes!

Great hike. only went to overlook but that was enough for 1 day.

really nice, super easy walking trial. Good place to just take an hour out of your day and get some nature in. Part of the trial is literally right net to the highway... but it is still a nice walk even with the couple of minutes of city noise.

easy walk...nice and quiet

Beautiful scenery and a great workout... maybe won't go in the middle of July again, would love to do this trail again in the fall!
