This is a great trail for walking with the family, hiking, and running. pet friendly and it's possible to bring a stroller as well.

Scenic and different elevations.

Great to run and then in reverse to get in a nice 5 miles.

Very well maintained with good trail markers. single female I felt very safe. Came after a good rain and the trail was dry and enjoyable. the pups loved it.

Great trail!!

Nice little 2 mile trail. It initially goes over a bridge with a pretty lake and the rest is wooded. Plenty of deer and there’s some civil war history to be seen.

Trails were narrow and difficult to follow, so chose to bail out and run across the street on the Noland Trail.

As an avid runner, I wouldn't recommend this one. It seems good for biking.

Nice hike through civil war history. The earthworks are amazing to see and learning about the history is awe inspiring. Great views of the reservoir.

Great all around trail. You can start in different directions for diversity. I have walked if plenty of times and I look forward to running it.

Excellent trail. Great for all fitness levels. Great place to walk with your dog or run if you're looking for more of a challenge.

Very beautiful. The walk around the lake was amazing in winter :)

Could not find a restroom for a long time.

Not difficult ~5 miles depending on what route you take. Generally not too crowded, with some nice views. Great hidden gem in an easy to get to location in Newport News Va.

Beautiful scenery including a great view of the water. Trail was easy to follow, flat, and mostly clear of debris. If you go in the winter be sure to dress warm. The wind was pretty strong, especially near the water. We even saw a few deer.

Nice long walk, heavily populated at times but I still love it.

A regular fave - great Cross Country type trail with a 3 and a 5 mi option.

A bit busy at times, but always a pleasant challenge.

Really loved this trail, was easy but not too easy (like a paved path would be). It was very clean and easy to navigate. I will most definitely be going again!

Enjoyed this trail for walking or running. Moderately crowded.

quite possibly the best part of the peninsula. Plenty of outlets if you find want to do the whole five miles. Well maintained and patrolled.

Great loop with several beautiful views of the water! Also, some incredible historical anecdotes on a battle that occurred at this location.

Walked the dogs there this evening! Great trail!

lots of traffic usually, be careful of downed logs

Excellent trail. Very well maintained and well marked.

Short but nice trail. There are plenty of overlooks and benches. Well maintained although you will need to watch for occasional roots in the path. Excellent trail for dogs as it is mostly shaded and not too long in the heat of the day.
