The parking for this trail is directly off of Olive. There are maybe 7 parking spots. Even though this trail was very short, I spent about half of the hike following dead-end trails which was frustrating. It is very peaceful and doesn't look like it gets a lot of foot traffic, but the trail follows right behind someone's backyard. It is very well-shaded and has decent elevation change for such a short hike.

This trail needs some markers to stay on path. There were a few times we followed what looked like a path and took to a dead end. Some areas had overgrown weeds/plants etc. It was a decent hike for a beginner like me.

A short but super beautiful hike. I couldn't believe I was in Chesterfield. The trail is only one mile. The trailhead (or end?) is located behind the governor's house. It is a little bit of a walk to get there which can be confusing.
