Hampton's premier park is a 456 acre environmental education and wildlife management facility. Born from borrow pits and garbage dumps, the park is truly a success story of reclamation of our natural resources. From the 10,000 square foot nature center overlooking Sandy Bottom Lake to the elusive creatures that inhabit the wetland marshes, there is something for everyone at Sandy Bottom Nature Park.

Great easy trail. Saw lots of wildlife. Trail is a little load along the road sections, but I would definitely walk it again.

Easy path, even with little kids. Scenery by the lake is great with lots of turtles and ducks for young ones to watch.

We were able to push our double stroller along this trail- it was bumpy at times, but doable. A good portion of the path runs alongside the highway and is so incredibly loud, my husband and I couldn't hear each other and had to shout at one another- we were SO glad when that stretch finally ended. Because of that, we probably will not do it again.

This trail is a nice length and just the right amount of mixed scenery and trail type. The trail does get very wet when it rains and a few parts do not dry out...ever. There are parts that hold water and are difficult to get around. This is one of the fewer traveled trails so it has areas that have higher grass and during slow times you may not run into anyone. In the summer it is mostly shaded with a few stretches in full sun. The mosquitos can be vicious due to the standing water, bring bug spray.

Definitely a mixed trail, depending on the location within the park. Some areas have good views, others are bland. One section is close to the highway, while others seem quiet and secluded. The areas near the parking and picnic areas can get a little crowded, but the further out you hike, the more solitude there is to enjoy.

The portion of the trail that runs adjacent to Hampton Roads Center Parkway can get a little flooded and soggy at times. Like most parks and trails, it closes at sunset.

Mostly flat and gravely. Some roots once you get off of the gravel portion.

I take walks through Sandy Bottom occasionally with my wife and dog. There are some areas where water will tend to pool up on the paths if there has been some rain, but they are normally easy to get around.

Great hike and I loved the park. The trails were well marked and quite lovely. Highly recommend it!
