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.

This is a nice trail the water is beautiful and give off a nice breeze. However this trail has a lot of roots and should not be considered wheelchair friendly (not that we were using one just for reference)

I tagged this onto the Osmanthus Trail. Lovely walk that takes you through swamps, forests, and beachside. This would be an easy trail run. Highly trafficked, but there are numerous benches strategically placed along the water portion that provide a peaceful view and some privacy. Definitely a good place to think. I wasn't too excited about the Cape Henry Trail stretch as it is more road-like than trail with a lot of biker and runner traffic, so I used it as an excuse to pick up my leisurely pace to a quick-walk back to the parking lot.

Nice trail but lots of sounds of planes and some kind of machinery near by. The section walking along the water was beautiful in late afternoon

We did this in the summer of 2013. There were five of us so it was fun. The trail is nice.

One of the many connector trails in the park. I like the meandering nature and bits of elevation change along the way.

Beautiful trail, short but has this fallen tree which one must duck under, so no real running through here with any speed!

Kingfisher Trailis only .6 miles long but it takes at least a mile and a half to connect with it. Once there it is a beautiful trail.

A short little third of a mile down to the water, but there is beauty along the way.
