Great city hike. Easily done by most parties. Doesn’t even seem like you’re in Richmond!

This is an excellent 4+ mile in-city walk/hike; it's much more invigorating than a flat surface walk w/rises, twists, rocks and roots to navigate. During the week in the mornings it is not heavily traveled so it's often quite peaceful in the woods (unless the train is running).
