Williamsburg, Virginia Map

Hit this trail, early this morning, after it stormed all night. Trail is a combination of roots, sand, and leaves. All that '70s quicksand training paid off. The second I hit that wet sand I thought I was a goner, but I slide all the way across to the hard land, and caught myself. Praise Be 1970s TV! It saved my life! Otherwise, one of my favorite trails and I go often but I don't run it. I trip over air.

Have been staying in Williamsburg and this place is super close. Normally, you have to watch out for Mnt. Bikers as this place is really geared to them. Ranger recommended hiking reverse direction so you see them coming. However, today was after a couple days of heavy rain so the trails were closed to them. Basically had the place to myself, only saw a family group on trail and one Mtn Biker who didn't get the memo. My track is C + D (I didn't do any of C West of 3). C is where all the Mnt. Bike jumps, balance beams and tricks are. 5 single track trails with other connectors, so you can put together a nice longer hike or do a shorter one. Great place... makes me want to get a MTB again! Will be back again and again.

We hiked the lookout trail on a Sunday morning and saw no one else on the trail. The trail is over the forest bed, with lots of roots, and with several minor accents and descents into and out of gullies. Bathrooms are near the boat house. Parking is off of Airport Road, with $2 charge.

Beautiful walking trail near the lake.

More hills than you'd expect for Southeastern VA. Very muddy in several spots. Wear good shoes. Watch out for snakes on trail.
