This trail is the best one in my opinion of Crows Nest Natural Area. This is a great place that is finally set aside from development, and well worth it. The best part about this path is it is mostly single track, so there are twists and turns, ups and downs, and lot of roaded Dendrin that will look great when it blooms. There are lots of bugs, just like everywhere else in Virginia in August, and spider webs. The marsh land is nice, and lots of birds to listen to. There are also lots of little frogs, try not to step on them. There is a birding trail a half mile long that can be accessed from this trail, which I am excited to do on a day when my dog is not having such a hard time in the heat.
