Hike or bike everything in the park. Take the guided tour of the mansion. This is a working farm but it also has forestry and farming exhibits, an old car and gift shop. It was a beautiful fall day.

Part of the route can be completed using a motor vehicle on the gravel road. But motor vehicles are not allowed beyond a point so you will need a bike or walk. There are short birding trails off the connector all the way.

A nice walk in the woods on a beautiful day. Hog Island is a peninsula sticking out in the James River. I saw a lot of large fishing birds.

Another nice walk in the woods. Hog Island is a peninsula jutting out into the James river. It is a beautiful mid-November day for a walk; not hot and not cold on a bright sunshiny day.

This is a nice walk in the woods and today was beautiful. I saw a lot of birds including large fishing birds. I would not know a turkey from a canary but it was fun seeing them dive for their diner. Like all of the trails on Hog Island )Really a peninsula) there are some nice water views. I think dogs are allowed on a leash for tracking wounded animals.

It is a little long for the punch but there is some good scenery in places.

Not my favorite trail. Nothing to see but fields. Fortunately we walked it on a lovely day!

Trail was fairly easy, partially shaded with pleasant views of the plantation and river. Check out the park service area with the hogs you can pet. We came at cotton picking time and rangers gave a great demonstration. Also the corn kernel stripping machine was a big hit. Worth a visit.

It was a beautiful day and we did all the trails in the park. All were easy. We really enjoyed the mansion tour, the gift shop, the saw mill and the farming exhibits.

A nice trail with a lot to see. It starts right near the mansion so be sure and take the guided tour.

Be sure and see the frm and forrestry museum. It will only add about a quarter mile to your hike.
