Fun trail, a Virginia Beach classic. Plenty of bikes on the Cape Henry trail so be sure to stay to the right!

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!
