Miles and miles of trails that follow the Rappahanock River and surround the rock quarry. There's a tunnel that goes under I-95, trails made of logs, nice over look points, and cardiac uphills. Not a very fast trail, but technical at times with a lot of roots, rocks, and drainage problems.

Wonderful time spent on the Rappahannock River Trail. We did the asphalt loop and then ventured off down the hard packed gravel road along side of the Virginia Outdoor Center to the trail head. We were able to squeeze out 10.42 miles in just a few hours and we didn't even hit all the trails. Very well maintained trails that we rode and enjoyed every moment! They had gotten a little rain the night before but it was manageable. Kudos to those who maintain this system because it's a gem! We'll be back...Thanks
