Larus park is 106 acres of wooded solitude bounded by Huguenot Road, Chippenham Parkway and Stony Point Fashion Park. There’s a network of singletrack trails in Larus park, but no loop can be put together without bushwhacking. A biker or runner could probably get in 3-4 miles here, but would have to backtrack in places to see all the trail. Paths shoot off in different directions, just begging to be followed. The park is an urban explorer’s dream. For more information visit: https://www.richmondoutside.com/destination/larus-park/Show more
