Lancaster, Virginia Map

Easy, flat trail. There were tree roots in the path but it was well cleared otherwise. To many spiders, I'm pretty sure I was totally covered in spider webs by the end. Not much to look at but trees.

Hike is easy to do. Very kid friendly and beautiful views. Definitely recommend!!

Small network of well blazed trails with some picnic spots, tree markers, and water lookouts.

Nice walk on well-blazed trails. Some elevation changes and a minor amount of water to view, but mostly wooded. Deer flies were relentless!

A nice walk down to the river. I wish it had been longer.

This was a good hike, pretty scenic. Most of the trails are improved paths because it is not great if you are looking for an adventure, but if you're looking for a nice stroll through the woods it was pretty nice. The marsh/bay looked great for canoeing so I really wanna come back and try that out.

The trails are decent; very simple. I mostly come here for the kayaking!

I am sure we will be back to do the rest of the trails but since there is so much open to the sun it will have to wait. It is in the 90's every day. I liked the little camp store.

This is my favorite kind of trail; small but easy to follow and shaded. It joins the White Trail for over half the loop.

Very flat and wide open. Many of the trails are in the open. The river views are awesome and, like all Virginia State Parks, so are the friendly rangers.

Beautiful forest but not much else The little streams did little. But it was a beautiful day to be in the woods. The trails are very easy to follow. They run in straight lines much of the time and are well blazed.
