Beaver Lake Trail @ Pocahontas State Park in Chesterfield, VA
Nice trail with plenty of level changes to work the back of the calves. Easy enough for younger one and wide enough for a whole family and some dogs. Great views and a few floating docks to stop and fish or grab a picnic lunch.
Great trail! I took my toddler for his first hike here and he was easily able to complete the whole thing. The nature center was also really fun for kids.
Well-maintained and peaceful
This was my wife and I first trail we had ever walked and it started a new addiction!
I really enjoyed the trail. I also took my little dog with me and he love it. The trail has a few docks where you can view the lake which is nice. The trail is well kept and clearly marked. During one part of the trail it crosses a sandy stream which my dog loved. He jumped in and cooled off. This trail is very dog friendly and I will be doing this one again!
