First Landing Park trails, in their entirety, are great way to spend your entire day. For the most part, they're all flat trails, with the only challenge coming in their length depending on how much you prefer to walk. Be sure to pick up a park map from the trail Center. It's worth noting that there's also a parking pass fee ranging from $5 to $10 depending on the time of year.

Good trail, generally has less people than the rest of the park. (it's the farthest from any parking)

Great beach for the dogs. The trail was ok but there’s no parking near the trail so you have to walk 1 mile to get there. We didn’t do the full thing because I had a young pup that was tired and it was pretty warm. But we had a good time.

Great bike ride! We took our kids and they are not strong bikers, but had a great time. Heard the frogs, saw the woodpeckers and the swamps. A little crowded on a Saturday in March, but still room to ride. Decent elevation changes for controlled coasting and mild hill climbs.

Great for dogs

Great trail

This is a nice trail the water is beautiful and give off a nice breeze. However this trail has a lot of roots and should not be considered wheelchair friendly (not that we were using one just for reference)

I tagged this onto the Osmanthus Trail. Lovely walk that takes you through swamps, forests, and beachside. This would be an easy trail run. Highly trafficked, but there are numerous benches strategically placed along the water portion that provide a peaceful view and some privacy. Definitely a good place to think. I wasn't too excited about the Cape Henry Trail stretch as it is more road-like than trail with a lot of biker and runner traffic, so I used it as an excuse to pick up my leisurely pace to a quick-walk back to the parking lot.

Rode my bike from 64th street entrance to Shore Drive entrance and back ... roughly 7 miles ... nice smooth trail ...

Very nice trail, always see people on it but it's never too crowded. Saw a bald eagle first time on this trail so I'll definitely be back!

This trail was so nice, even on a cloudy day like it was. Not too many people considering it was a Saturday, and we only went a little while down. My friend and I brought our dogs too, and they loved it! I loved the part with the little bridge path!

Hiked the trail Dec. 24, 2017. A good trail for beginner, like myself. Great views of the lake and surrounding homes.

Mountain biking is a stretch to describe this trail. It does have some very pleasant views, especially once you get to "the narrows" section.

Beautiful trail! It gets narrow at some points! Definitely more hiking like than Osmanthus trail. We did not see any snakes this time so it was much better for me! We went right after the storm so it smelt amazing!
