The park offers approximately 12 miles of hiking trails, 7 of which are open year round. The Boyds Hole Trail and Flats trail go through the wildlife management area and critical shoreline area and are closed during the summer months to allow the young bald eagles to learn to hunt without disturbance. During these months these trails are only accessible during special guided park eagle tours that typically occur on weekends.

$4 for entry but you can get annual pass for all VA state parks. Ask the visitor center for a trail map. Moderately trafficked.

Great trail. $4 to park. Some of the outer trails at the park are not well marked.

it's a nice trail/road. if the tide is high, you can't walk the beach. lots of rain water made it pretty messy.

stayed pretty isolated without people for the magority of the morning.

The park has a parking fee and a real restroom. We connected a couple of trails and walked 4.3 miles. The trail is a paved access road. It was difficult to find soft ground...not my idea of a hike. Lots of trees that may be really pretty when there are leaves. In the winter, it's boring. It's also very easy...I'm not sure how this is rated as moderate.

easy and fairly uneventful hiking. Keep your eyes ipen for bald eagle nests and you might get a surprise! excellent hikes for children and families.

Lots of options for hikes from a bit less than a mile to a little over 5 miles (more during some seasons). There is also a small playground and picnic area. Not keen on parking fees, but all the state parks in VA seem to charge them.
