Great trail. It started out cold but you warm up quickly. My GPS said I could park closer to the trail, but that wasn’t true. I had to park at the visitor center. Which was fine, but you then get to this trail via Backbone. The footbridge is super cool. There were a few bikers and two other walkers. Nice and quiet. The beach picture showing this trail is actually just part of the river access at the Visitor Center. I almost missed it. But still a good trail.

It’s a great hike but a bit tricky to find. You have to park at the visitor lot and take the backbone trail. Which is fine, it’s just that my GPS to the park made it seem like there was closet parking to the trail. The beach in the main photo is actually just part of the river access. Not this trail specifically.

This was a nice stroll through the woods with a few gorgeous views of the river. There were some interesting historical markers along the path which was pretty neat. There were a few easy climbs but nothing to difficult. The trail was wide and clear of debris and roots. FYI there is a $4 parking fee. I only gave it 4 stars because the first part of the trail was not well marked and I did have to back track. Would recommend.

This was a nice trail nothing as spectacular as theTaskina's or even Mattaponi but nice. If you like hiking in the woods this will be a treat.
