We stopped by the State Park also serve as a rest stop on the 17. Nice.

I went during my lunch hour today. I was in a shade of green and hearing the birds sings. This was a perfect place to take a walk in a hot summer day.

Nathan said it best, Do this one and do the second loop for the figure eight trail.

I did this a couple months ago and must have forgot to enter it. It is a nice double loop out into the swamp. Bikes are not allowed on this trail but there are many miles of bike options in the park.

It was an easy walk. Got a chance to go inside the swamp without getting wet.

Get a fat tire bike from the park headquarters and weave in and out of the trails between Corapeake Road and Kim Saunders Road. It was a beautiful mid December day for a bike ride.

Another beautiful Mid-December bike ride. My legs are sore from pedaling so many trails, but it was worth it.

A nice ride on a bright, beautiful mid-December day. This trail is great for a mountain bike or big tire bike. It is level all the way so you don't need gears. It runs from the park headquarters to the Virginia line.

This is my kind of trail; a walk in the woods on a single track trail. It is an easy trail and wooded all the way. All that and a beautiful mid December day. I was walking along with my camera turned on and ready to fire when a bob-cat ran across the trail in front of me. Sorry, but I could not get the picture in time. I have never seen one in Virginia before.

This is the long version of the swamp boardwalk trail. There are two chances to sit if you need to.

This is a short, easy walk. It is an even and level boardwalk with a rest half way around, so even the least able should be able to enjoy the swamp.

I spent 2 days and plan to spend more. I saw a bobcat, but he went across in front of me so fast that I could not get his picture even though I had the camera on and in my hand. Like most parks, the rangers are really friendly here. It was beautiful December weather and I truly enjoyed it. Most of the trails in the park are joint hiking/biking except for two.
