Currently closed. Doesn’t say why.

Not bad except for the highway being right next to you.

Terrific! Beautiful views, a great path surface, and a bit of elevation change every once in a while to keep you honest. This is a walk/hike that provides you with great water views as you walk in a forested area; a rare combination!

easy hike. nice views. fun walk.

We are doing a research on the Shot Tower after we been there please answer this question

How far did the shot tower fall?

If you could help me that would me great!

This is on the Auto Tour route. The speed limit is 25 so it’s like running in your neighborhood. That being said, didn’t see one car in the route. I ran at 9am on a Saturday and. I cats. Great run full of history. Pretty hilly.

Excellent trail for running. Easy and wide for passing. Beautiful too.

Beautiful and easy for a quick hike.

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.

Trail is 3 miles for the marked part and another .3 running through the parking lot from one start/finish to the other. Not 4.4 as advertised. Good trail with slight hills. Decent amount of traffic both ways.

Tryin to decide north to sout or visa a versa ?? Any comments

This is a gorgeous bike and hiking trail that circles Jamestown Island. Goes over marshes, across wooden bridges, and right down to the James River.

Only bicycled part of this trail consisting of going across the Chickahominy River and several miles west. Nice parking area just east of the river with restrooms.

Wonderful, historic ride thru the Yorktown battlefield in October. Did not like sharing the road with cars, as we parked at the Visitors Center. This was part road biking, part trail biking. Takes awhile if you stop and read the historic markers.

walked several times. good urban trail. highly recommend for midweek morning hike to avoid heavier bike and other hiker traffic.

Beautiful trail with awesome views of bell isle and the water. It wasn’t crowded at all and was very peaceful. But it’s really easy to get lost because there are so many other paths that branch off from the main trail, and it overlaps with multiple other trails. Make sure to remember which turns you took.

Great trail well marked and maintained

Pretty easy walk, a lot of ups and downs. $2 park fee, make sure you go to the building by the water to pay before you go to leave.

Great trail but it gets a 3 star because of the high traffic. Still worth visiting but expect lots of people and bikes.

Nice trail which I used to walk when I was young. It's fun to see the lakefront halfway through the trail, too.

Amazing outdoor walls, right on the river, a great day activity for any aged climber.

A very well maintained trail with a lot of wildlife tracks as well as interesting water features such as creeks and two lakes. A person could take a simple stroll in the park or a walk through the woods or even take less trafficked routes to go exploring. I felt very safe. Well trafficked. Even in the snow there was no shortage of footprints on the trails.

Literally just out our backdoor.
Great trails for a jog, a morning cup of coffee or an afternoon cocktail.
Look for RVA Rocks!

Orange trail is easy 1.7 miles. Is well marked and includes an overlook of the Potomac River and passes by a Civil War cemetery. Relaxing hike with only slight elevation gains/losses.

Just as an FYI don't forget to pay for your ticket which is $8 for adults at in information center(before entering). But well worth the fee. Its an easy walk to the bridge. Beyond the bridge you'll walk along a decent size creek/river filled with beautiful rock formation. There are a few areas to explore on you walk. At the end of the trail you will find a pleasant surprise.

Trails are closed from Nov. 1 - March 31. The beach is still open and the loop at the very beginning, but no real trails during that period.

Great trail, very busy though... bikers are careless so watch out.
