Great trail my daughter and I pushed a stroller and did fine probably would be better with an all terrain stroller. The hike was listed as 3.8 miles but my tracker ended up at 4.8. So just be aware. As others have said about half way through the hike you end up in a neighborhood and have to pass a school and playground but then you hop back into the park setting quickly. We really enjoyed all the water views. Not too busy in January.

Excellent little park I like going to on days I have a long lunch break. Problems: 1. you can see how much people in a city, even the outskirts of a city, litter. The creek has been manipulated by beavers so when it rains huge parts of the grounds nearby floods. And trash gets flushed out from everywhere and builds up with brush piles and such. I'm really not okay with that and pick up some every time I go down that way. 2. The county decided to sell a good portion of the park by the creek so almost half of that entire section was at once taped up/roped off with signs showing the new parcel that was purchased. Of course people said screw that. It's a public park. Ergo owned by the public. And the public did not consent to this. So all the roping and signage was torn down by visitors (I did not, btw.) But you can still hear construction down that way on most days. I'm assuming they're adding something for the apartment complex next door. It's really sad that there's fewer and fewer places of nature in this area every year and even worse that a good chunk of one that was actually accessible to the public is being developed as well. Positives: Since that little creek connects to several others and reservoirs that connect to the large Tuckahoe creek you can easily see a variety of animals in the park. I've seen snapping turtles, beavers, hawks, snakes, several species of lizards, and tons of chipmunks. Ducks and geese will occasionally visit too. I think it's probably for their sake that I'm most upset about the development. The trail network is massive for its location. I'd say AllTrails only has about half of it mapped (I will add to it later if I can figure out how.) Some of it is paved, some of it is rocky, some of it is dirt, and some of it is seasonally flooded. It's got some great variety. IME it's only super busy on super nice days or during the summer when it hasn't rained that day. People sometimes let their dogs off the leash and there are people and kids on bikes so even though it's a relatively small park remember to be aware of your surroundings, especially if you're with a dog or small child. And I'd suggest not letting your dog or child play in the creek. Like I said, there's trash (like parts of bikes ect) and sometimes snapping turtles in there. That being said the west side of the creek is alot cleaner and picturesque than the east side.

Beautiful spot where you can explore a marshland. Easy hiking, good for families.ongerEastandWestdike trails are closed between November and March 1st. Easy access to beach as well.

Incredible views and just enough challenge to make it worth it. The entrance to the trail isn’t particularly well marked in the parking lot off 220 but otherwise a great day hike!!

Great day for a ride the rain kept folks from coming out, only saw two other people riding today! Beautiful Cascades along the route, definitely enjoy the first 17 miles the most, more in the woods, also no rain till we started the second 17 miles from Demacus to Abington! Spotted several white tail deer and lots of water fowl!

A good place to walk for 30-45 minutes. Usually busy and a lot of dogs but the main trails are kept up well and has wooded and lake walkways.

Definitely not a walk on the wild side. Flip-flops would be appropriate footwear on this trail. Lots of trees but no access, the trail is completely paved, no red mud anymore.

Weekends and rush hour this is a heavily trafficked paved trail. There is a horse trail beside it that is nicer for hiking. Trail is used by bike commuters, cycling groups, runners, all training for various races. It has lots of amenities and is beautiful.

Nice place as on description. A bit artifiscial-natural. However a perfect place for riding or running. Lot of parking space with several piknic places and toilets along the route.

Muddy after a night of rain (to be expected) and fairly crowded since it was the one warm/sunny day in January, but a good trail with beautiful views nonetheless.

Cool artillery emplacements from early 1900s, with interesting and very informative plaques. Not many trails that we could find (mostly paved roads once meant for cars), virtually no trail markings, no maps anywhere. This could be fun for a short bike ride.

Great brisk walk along the Capital Trail with amazing scenery next to the James River! Grabbing a bike next time to go further!

Great hike for dogs! Certainly made my 3 year old Lab tired! Not a lot of views, but very nice. Quite busy in the parking lots and on the main trail, but only saw one other person on the mountain trail!

Nice and clean park. Worth to go there at least ones to have a run or a family piknic. But if you want to chill or relax, forget it. Rd168 is so extremly loud that you barly can hear your kid shouting from 30yrds. It's not a place to get rested...

Tried this trail for a family bike ride and was disappointed with how narrow and crowded the trail was. May do it again on my own, but would not recommend for a young (my son is 7) riders. Pretty views though, and safely away from traffic which was nice!

This is great place for just about everything. We took the dogs and did about 2 miles with all of the different trails.

This is one of my absolute favorite state parks in the southwest region of Virginia! I really enjoy spending the day at the park and taking advantage of the lake by swimming or kayaking and then hanging out in the hammock! The trail is a great way to decompress and enjoy nature with no disruptions for the majority of the trail! This trail isn’t super easy, it has some places that are decently steep but it really is a trail for almost anyone! There are quite a few roots and rocks but it is really well maintained If you enjoy mountain biking - this trail is great for that too! If you get a map, there are more single track trails running off of this main trail.

People must learn proper bike etiquette and slow down!

Loved this set of trails and walking paths! I did the “Orange Loop” and it is mostly flat with a nice view of the pond halfway through. It is a short walk but nice with a pupper and on this Sunday morning there were very few people out. There is a paved path that is about the same distance that would likely be great for running. The orange loop is shaded and it was mostly covered with damp leaves and a few muddy spots, it did rain the day before. I would highly recommend if you’re looking for an easy nature walk or run or if you have kids.

Towards the end, I had trouble finding my car. I wish Henrico Parks made maps of their walking/hiking trails for us navigationally-challenged folks.
