Great hike. Some forest, some beach. Quite a few little critters, crabs, lizards and a water snake.

Sandy on the Long Creek side, well maintained. Bring bug spray. Cape Henry is a road with a mix of sand and gravel, bikes allowed on this leg.

Like the twisting and turning and short but abrupt elevation changes on this trail! Nice variety and seemed liked something new around every bend in the trail!

Hiked after a solid week of rain and it was surprisingly unaffected. Most of the trail is sandy earth so I’m sure the water drains well. There was one creek crossing that was fun. Sections of connecting trails were closed due to construction and maintenance. Good 3 hour activity.

Nature trips

A fun hike, very clearly marked and very easy to walk. Just be sure to bring tons of bug spray and watch for snakes. Also everyone who uses this app should also use the Picture This Plants app! It’s a fun app that you take pictures of the flora around you and it will give descriptions and details for said plant. I personally enjoy it and enjoy sharing my findings!

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 was such a nice day, I decided to take a longer hike. I started on Cape Henry Trail then merged onto Bald Cypress Trail. About .5 mile later I picked up Long Creek Trail and hiked it out to the 64th street entrance and then back on the Cape Henry Trail once again. Combined it made for a 13 mile hike. I've hiked Long Creek Trail in both directions, and today's path was definitely more challenging than in reverse. Great hiking today and lots of birds-

Beautiful. The various forest conditions make it a pleasure. The swamp crossings a wonderful with the new walkways provided by various boys scout groups. Amazing amount of wildlife in the middle of a major city. Looking forward to many hikes at various times of the year.

A beautiful trail on a beautiful day. I think all Virginia State Parks are wonderful and First Landing is no exception. When you get out on long wooded trails it is hard to remember that you are in the middle of a major city. It was busy but other than that it was solitude.

Running
First to Review

For my first trip to First Landing State Park, I decided to try out the Long Creek Trail. From the visitor's center, we ran along the Cape Henry Trail to the road, then ran back along the Long Creek Trail. Great views, varied terrain, some mud, and lots of people near the visitor's center (it thinned out the further we got). There were a lot of little ups and downs and some tight corners. Great run, can't wait to check out some of the other trails at this park, it looks like I could spend all week here. Also, $4 weekday and $5 weekend parking fee in the park--well worth it.
