First Landing Park trails, in their entirety, are great way to spend your entire day. For the most part, they're all flat trails, with the only challenge coming in their length depending on how much you prefer to walk. Be sure to pick up a park map from the trail Center. It's worth noting that there's also a parking pass fee ranging from $5 to $10 depending on the time of year.

it's rare to run through so many different eco-systems in one trail / park - but this is it. Full of life and bio-diversity not to mention a chance to jump in the water and cool off on a hot day...

Park outside the entrance on 62nd Street to avoid a park fee $

Your hike will be a series of running away from bugs, mosquitos and crabs. Best when it's pouring rain! Super fun:)!

The hike was intended to be a "hike" but eventually turned into a game of tag via mosquitos. The crabs seemed to be running from something bigger than us we have yet to find out. Eventually down the beaten path we found a turtle... we got way to hype when we found it and took it with us... but after the countless hours of walking we soon hoped for a little rain to aid the bug bites... next thing we know the rain started pouring down and we had a wild run "with the turtle" back to the car. Meh mad decent hike!

Didn't camp here but the hike was nice. You need to get your hiking done at First Landing. Fort Story has closed their trails although you can still drive to the lighthouse. Your car will be checked at the entry gate. (You must use Gate 8 if you are not military. The day started gloomy and turned beautiful.
