I spent about 7 hours hiking the trails here and still didn't see all of it. There is great scenery and history, but the map is inaccurate otherwise this would be a 5.

I truly have enjoyed running through the park. Have run the Road Tour. Good shoulder for bikers, walkers and runners.
7+ miles for round trip. (Many trails that could be explored as well)
Good challenge. Some decent hills along the way, both ways.
Beautiful, peaceful scenic road lined with trees. Seen multiple deer while running.
If in the Colonial Heights area and want a very nice place to get some miles in, make sure to visit this park.
