Love this park! There are several trails to choose from and they are all nicely marked with maps and how long each trail is. There is even a very nice disc golf course and admission is only $3. I enjoy every visit to New Quarter.

I went here for the first time to walk the C trail. It was accurately measured at 4.9 miles (8k). It was clearly marked, well maintained, very little poison ivy! which is a great thing as so many of the trails I walk are inundated with that stuff, and really beautiful. It looked like the most fun BMX bike trail have ever seen.

it's kid friendly as far as the playground goes. but it's definitely not toddler friendly as far as the trail goes. Too many tree roots coming out of the ground.

Great way to get away from it all. Not muddy. Minimum burn after 4.5 miles. Pretty easy. Did it with my 9 year old!

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've run these trails 3 times now. If you want it to yourself then go early in the morning. There's usually plenty of shells to find on the beach. It is kept up very well, however the last time I went there was a tree down covering one of the trails. If you go when it is humid outside then be sure to bring bug spray. The best part in my opinion is how secluded it is. Will be going back this summer to run.
