Short hike along the Potomac River front in Leesylvania State Park. The gentle trail makes for an easy stroll, with picnic and fishing areas along the way.

Very easy paved/gravel path (construction completed). Walks right by the water/beach. No incline, great for seniors, walkers, and kids. Walk is about a mile, but can be extended onto nearby trails. Has park and children’s play area to one side, water on the other. Path is completely dog friendly. Is a moderately busy area. Fee of $7 to park as of March 2020. It is a beautiful area and the breeze off the water is great.

This walk is wonderful on a beautiful day. As other reviewers have said, there is some information about the trail on signs. There is benches, grills, and a children's play area. Currently much of the area is under construction, but that doesn't prevent you from walking the trail. The trail is short and wonderful for people with small children or the elderly. I took my dog to test out some of our hiking equipment. It was a wonderful walk. Please note that there is a fee to park. I think it's about $4.

I agree with Shannon that it was a little boring compared to the other trails in the park.
