Great all around trail. You can start in different directions for diversity. I have walked if plenty of times and I look forward to running it.

Excellent trail. Great for all fitness levels. Great place to walk with your dog or run if you're looking for more of a challenge.

This trail is awesome! But it gets crowded on the weekends.

Very beautiful. The walk around the lake was amazing in winter :)

Could not find a restroom for a long time.

Not difficult ~5 miles depending on what route you take. Generally not too crowded, with some nice views. Great hidden gem in an easy to get to location in Newport News Va.

Great trail for a Christmas Day family hike!

I'm not much of a fan of gravel stone or hiking access roads, which this trail has too much.

This was a nice stroll through the woods with a few gorgeous views of the river. There were some interesting historical markers along the path which was pretty neat. There were a few easy climbs but nothing to difficult. The trail was wide and clear of debris and roots. FYI there is a $4 parking fee. I only gave it 4 stars because the first part of the trail was not well marked and I did have to back track. Would recommend.

Great city hike. Easily done by most parties. Doesn’t even seem like you’re in Richmond!

This is an excellent 4+ mile in-city walk/hike; it's much more invigorating than a flat surface walk w/rises, twists, rocks and roots to navigate. During the week in the mornings it is not heavily traveled so it's often quite peaceful in the woods (unless the train is running).

Nice long walk, heavily populated at times but I still love it.

it's rare to run through so many different eco-systems in one trail / park - but this is it. Full of life and bio-diversity not to mention a chance to jump in the water and cool off on a hot day...

Park outside the entrance on 62nd Street to avoid a park fee $

A regular fave - great Cross Country type trail with a 3 and a 5 mi option.

A bit busy at times, but always a pleasant challenge.

Really loved this trail, was easy but not too easy (like a paved path would be). It was very clean and easy to navigate. I will most definitely be going again!

great trail but make sure you have somebody with you, is very secluded!!!

Not great for hiking. The trail is a gravel road.

Enjoyed this trail for walking or running. Moderately crowded.

Great trail to run. Perfect in that it's just over a half marathon distance and allows your to almost completely circle the park. Some of the climbs feel like they go on forever but nothing on this trails is difficult to navigate. Also not many roots or rocks to run on.

quite possibly the best part of the peninsula. Plenty of outlets if you find want to do the whole five miles. Well maintained and patrolled.

Walked the dogs there this evening! Great trail!

lots of traffic usually, be careful of downed logs

Excellent trail. Very well maintained and well marked.

Great trail!

Great trail. Pretty challenging. Great views with water. Plenty of elevation.

Your hike will be a series of running away from bugs, mosquitos and crabs. Best when it's pouring rain! Super fun:)!

The hike was intended to be a "hike" but eventually turned into a game of tag via mosquitos. The crabs seemed to be running from something bigger than us we have yet to find out. Eventually down the beaten path we found a turtle... we got way to hype when we found it and took it with us... but after the countless hours of walking we soon hoped for a little rain to aid the bug bites... next thing we know the rain started pouring down and we had a wild run "with the turtle" back to the car. Meh mad decent hike!

Loved it! Took the dogs and had a great time!
