This was a decent trail for running. I enjoyed the elevation changes. Theres several routes/trails there, and I probably took the one that was least conducive to running. I wish it was a little smoother, but I’d say it was mostly for hiking and mountain biking.

had a great time on these two trails. lots of elevation change found some of the hills the be a bit challenging. loved seeing all of the bike obstacles. would've given five stars but I feel that the trail marking could use some refining. I will definitely be using these trails again.

HikingBugsGreat!

COVID-19 // Interpretive Center closed. Trails, playground, and bathrooms OPEN. Other than having to re-supply my water bottles from the bathroom sinks, it was all OK. I recommend you get a map from the roadside mailbox near the cabins and review it thoroughly before starting! See how the numbered ”multi-use trails” relate to the “A” through “D” bike trails. I hiked over 9 miles combining trails “A“ and “C.“ Trails “A” and “C” are not quite as tough as trails “D” and “E” on the west end of the property. Lots of ups and downs with roots everywhere. My only gripe is the whole thing is canopy (hence only three stars.) There’s not an open vista or view anywhere! I mean, if you love nothing but forest - this is for you! But it does make a decent workout. These are mountain bike courses, not for casual bicycle riding. On trail “C“, there are several installed TTFs (high ramps, teeters, narrow elevated bridges, etc.) - Each bike TTF has an optional bypass. If you’re HIKING, hike the trails beginning at your selected trail’s end. As a hiker, you should begin each trail where the “wrong way“ signs are.....or the opposite direction of the mountain bikes. Keep your eyes and ears open! The trails are open at 7 AM. I arrived at 7:20 and I didn’t see a bike until after 10 AM (July weekday.) DeepWoods Off! works. Have fun!!!

Wasn’t bad. Just a little strange to navigate. Especially if you want to do “8.2” miles. It’s made up of a lot of smaller trails that connect and is difficult to navigate the appropriate way around.

Beautiful trail and scenery, technical at times but very fun. Must use proper bikes. First time bikers, make sure you know how to utilize your gears, otherwise it will be a long day. It was nearly empty but it was a weekday. Stay with A trail if you are not interested in jumps. My son and his buddy rode the trail with their BMX bikes, brave boys! Recommend it definitely. Easy parking, convenient club house and addition to all that, historic sites a treat.

It was not a hike, but a trail for walking or biking. It was a good walk. Make sure you walk in the opposite way so you can see the bikers coming. Good to see some animals in their natural habitat. Make sure you have mosquito repellent, UGH.

First time on this trail and what an awesome experience. Got out early when the park first opened to run the trail before any mountain bikes showed up. Had the entire trail to myself...totally serene.

Mountain biking

I rode my mountain bike on part of Trail A and most of Trail C on a hot (95F) Sunday afternoon. Even though it was pretty hot the trees shaded the trails. I’m from FL so I’m not used to trails (or hills) so it took a while to feel comfortable. Fortunately there were almost no other bikers around for me to impede. For a beginner the most challenging part were the tree roots that cross the path. Trail A didn’t seem as easy to follow as C. I liked that the TTFs (Technical Trail Features) are well marked and the “safe” route around was easy to follow. Needless to say I took the easy way around the obstacles. I plan to go back.

We did part of the A trail in reverse as advised. Although single track as a hiker still a very nice and comfortable trail. Soft track from pine needles. Not a whole lot of rocks or roots.

Walk the trail backwards so I could see MTN bikers coming. The trail is well maintained and easy to follow backwards. It has nice changes in elevation and some pretty cool bike obstacles. Walk with wife and 9 year old daughter.

Running

We ran the A section of the trail just before dark on a Saturday night. It’s a great trail for running with slight elevation changes, switch backs and plenty of roots. This trail has a good overhead tree canopy so it can be run during midday and you will be in the shade for 90% of the run. The trail was approximately 4.7 miles long on my GPS.

I like this loop. It’s pleasant, well-marked, and undulating. It’s not really scenic and it’s almost completely wooded. That’s not bad for me, but i can see how it could be a bit monotonous for some.

Trail C is a great trail with tons of nice big jumps and gap jumps! I say from what I hear because when I went last October I miss judged a jump and went over my handle bars. Suffice to say I had a severe concussion and had around six months of memory loss for a time. Thankfully my buddy managed to get me out and to the hospital! So this is a great ride but wear your helmet! I would have probably died without mine!

Hiking

Have been staying in Williamsburg and this place is super close. Normally, you have to watch out for Mnt. Bikers as this place is really geared to them. Ranger recommended hiking reverse direction so you see them coming. However, today was after a couple days of heavy rain so the trails were closed to them. Basically had the place to myself, only saw a family group on trail and one Mtn Biker who didn't get the memo. My track is C + D (I didn't do any of C West of 3). C is where all the Mnt. Bike jumps, balance beams and tricks are. 5 single track trails with other connectors, so you can put together a nice longer hike or do a shorter one. Great place... makes me want to get a MTB again! Will be back again and again.

The bike trail was closed today due to rain so we hiked Trail C. It is a well maintained trail about 5 miles total. Pretty easy.

recently have become a vegan and have ran the trail everyday. amazing in the morning but very buggy in the afternoon definitely bring some mosquito spray and anything to repel the flies. before you know it you have 5 swarming around your head and what seems like intentionally flying into your face. I live on Centerville so I just jog to the opening and run till I'm burned out. Haven't gone down any of the trails yet, I tend to just run down the road but maybe tomorrow morning, who knows.

Walking

I went here for the first time to walk the C trail. It was accurately measured at 4.9 miles (8k). It was clearly marked, well maintained, very little poison ivy! which is a great thing as so many of the trails I walk are inundated with that stuff, and really beautiful. It looked like the most fun BMX bike trail have ever seen.
