Originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, First Landing State Park is located by the Chesapeake Bay. The park, which is Virginias most visited state park, is nestled in Virginia Beach. First Landing offers boating, swimming, nature and history programs, hiking, biking, picnicking, a boat launch, cabins and 20 miles of trails on 2,888 acres. It also has campsites with water and electric hook-ups and nearby access to restrooms and showers. The park's name was changed in 1997 from Seashore State Park to First Landing State Park to reflect its heritage as the first place where members of the Virginia Company landed. They went on to settle Jamestown.

Kinda boring after a while, but nice wide well kept trail for running. Can get busy esp during weekends. I still prefer the less traveled more varied trails that you can catch off of this one. But it gives you a nice path to get to those trails!

Run this all the time. Watch the mud along the farthest parts of the loops.... some of the bridge/crossings have broken or uneven slates. I don't know if Id call this the easiest hike ever. But its easy enough to run on and lots of fun.

Nice trail but lots of sounds of planes and some kind of machinery near by. The section walking along the water was beautiful in late afternoon
