It is a nice, easy hike. Very shaded and well maintained trail. Pretty views of the lake. Dog friendly

Have done some combination of this trail and the others in the park a few times. It's pretty hard to get lost, as you have a general sense of where you are from the water. Definitely easy going and offers several points to sit by the water and wade in if you choose. I love bringing my chocolate lab and letting her play fetch in the water.

Beautiful day at Lake Anna! The trail is well marked, saw lots of frogs and ferns and beauty everywhere!

$10 parking fee for the park which seems standard at all state parks. The trails were very muddy in low spots and pretty washed out on the slopes. We did several trails over 2.5 hours of hiking our 7.3 miles. Over all the trails were easygoing and even the moderate rated trails we found easy with few hills (up or down). This would be a great beginner park for hiking or to do pack or gear testing. Our dog loved the several water accesses. There are horse trails as well which had a few beautiful horses about as well.

I love this trail specifically because you cross two small little pond areas, good for horses that are afraid of water, good for training purposes. you also come to a picnic bench and table area right by the water, were you can also walk your horse into the Lake. There is plenty of grass for grazing after a long trail to the Lake before heading back back to the parking area. Nice trails, with bikers, dogs and families hiking and people on horse back. Trails are a little rooted, some rocks and some areas dirt which good for trotting and cantering.
