it's a nice peaceful spot to paddle, lots of historical waterway connections, floating lauch.

OMG! I went earlier today with my children, the bugs where hurendous and we couldn't even partake in the journey. Hopefully I'll retry it again to see it gets better! I was disappointed on this go around!!

The trail is super straight and seems like it never ends. bugs are not real bad. its more like a bug highway, they ping right off ur head/ face and for the most part continue on their way. Bikers defiantly wear a bandanna and sunglasses to keep bugs out and keep your mouth closed. (ate a few) The lake breeze was a welcome sight as well as the view.

Nice quiet walk (for the most part), with family, through the woods.

We strolled along with a baby and had a toddler on a bike and stayed on the roads so can't honestly rate the trails well. Great picnic and playground area!

It was OK for a bike ride. It is gravel the entire way. Perhaps a paved or "natural" trail would've been better.

This is a very simple and plain off road experience with no challenge. It does provide several scenic areas to hike with trails that are well maintained and that provide excellent views of the Dismal Swamp and eventually Lake Drummond.

So, the trail was nice and flat, easy to walk on. It is straight from start to end though, no varieties or change of scenery. Little boring for me. Great with dogs. I have to say the lake was absolutely stunning. Definitely go there. The long boring trail walk will be worth it when you see the lake.
