The park is between the Hampton Roads Beltway and Military Highway. If you are coming from the Greenbrier shopping area of Chesapeake cross over Greenbrier Parkway and take the right hand turn onto Military highway and head for 1.3 Miles to Paramount Avenue (between two car dealerships), once there just follow the flow of traffic along the road and about 1 Mile down the road you will see the entrance to the park on your left.

This was a beautiful beautiful trail. The trail is clearly marked but you can go off on all the little side trails and not feel like you're getting lost. We saw tons of little lizards, squirrels, and these cool damselflies that were either black or dark dark dark blue. I've never seen anything like them. Will definitely be doing this trail again.

We had fun here! As was said in another review, it really felt like you were out in the woods and not in the city! We took a long route 2.77 miles, a little hard to navigate but a fun adventure.

Literally just went. Felt like we were in the middle of nowhere but still in the city! Lots of rugged paths and mud, some of which was a bit like quicksand. Probably want to wear shoes you are okay with messing up. One of the people that came with me saw a spider the size of a small mouse; tons of spider webs in some parts, just grab a stick and wave it in front of you. I love adventures and off course things, so I would love to come back. Pretty easy to get lost, though.

This trail has a locals vibe and is geared toward BMX and mountain bikers. There were a few areas that were only for bikers so if you're walking through you need to stay out of the way. No payoff views but a solid loop for a palate cleanser.
