Explore the most popular wild flowers trails near Chesapeake with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

It's a pretty decent trail, however the first 2.2 miles runs parallel with the highway, and all that noise that comes with it. Bug spray is also a must.

Nice walking/running path. The occasional unleashed privileged dogs.
Lots of shade.

Love this easy trail walk. So pretty. This last time we had a deer run right by us. Always see some kind of wildlife.

My fav for running! Beautiful park!

Looks like an awesome trail. But upon calling Chesapeake Parks and Rec, Lake Drummond is only accessible by boat--i.e. this trail is not usable.
From looking at the map, it appears the only access to the trail goes through some private property on the west side of the Canal.

I only stayed for a 20 min walk but can't wait to go back.

Short, easy, wide, packed trail. Rather busy for an early Sunday morning but everyone was very friendly!

Great hike to do after work and to enjoy the peace and quiet. The trail does get very muddy when it has rained recently. Recommend you check yourself for ticks afterwards.

Great walk but not quiet since it’s still near the interstate and very busy. Overall a very nice walk and scenic.

Walked this trail after doing Otter Point Trail. Very easy and had it mostly to myself. Lots of places to stop if you want a rest of just soak up Nature.

I walked in today and did Otter Point Trail and then Molly Mitchell. I had Otter Creek all to myself and didn't even see another Person. I definitely wouldn't do any hiking in this park after a rain as a lot of it is low lying. It was easy and well maintained. Lots of places to stop and take in nature of to grab a rest.

A lot of litter and some idiot with unleashed dogs other than nice trail. Will do again and next time bring a bag to pickup litter

could not find a way across the canal

No trespassing signs at trailhead

Trails are great. To bad we went after a week of rain so most of them were washed out. Would definitely go back and try again on a more dry week. Lots for the family to see. My little girl loved it and had a blast.

Cannot figure out how to get to the trailhead. It's on the other side of the canal and a crossing is not obvious.

Scenic path around the lake. Heavily used, and you won’t get away from the road noise. However, if you’re looking for something quick, accessible and local to get outdoors for a bit, it’s a good walk.

Didn't find any obvious way to cross the canal, not sure if this trail is still supported by the park.

Quit crying about the litter and do something about it. It’s a free park. Do your part !!! We all need to do our part keeping trails clean.

trails were not marked very well at all and trash everywhere. not a trail i would do again

1 bridge is missing, 2 bridges are out of use because they are falling apart so you have to back track a lot.

Love this trail. Only problem is large groups of student athletes run at fast pace, which can be a bit dangerous. Otherwise awesome.

Well kept, short trail. Not much elevation change, probably would be very boring for experienced mountain bikers. Nice views of the lake. Two offshoot trails that were less well kept, but offered slightly more in the way of trail biking than the main trail. Overall, probably more of a walking trail but a nice experience.

An ok trail if you live nearby and need to stretch your legs, but it really is just 2 giant fields with paths cut by mowers. I go every so often to walk the dog, but only on cloudy and windy days during warm months. Biting bugs can be really bad so I only go if there is a strong breeze. There is a brand new just finished parking lot. Be aware one loop can be super muddy and the other has a few muddy spots. My dog needed a bath when we got home today. Might be fun for kite flying.

Not a long trail at all but very beautiful and interesting.
Gorgeous wetlands and several places for wonderful views of small pieces of water, and interestingly a well-protected but decrepit 1800s graveyard.

Thoroughly enjoyed this; flat, shaded and interesting.

loved it, even I the rain. a few low spots that wasn't good for running

Nice time with fam. Lots of bugs for kids to see. Of course, squirrels! The walk is calm and the office had a good map.
