it was nice not hard my kids were able to do it the youngest 9 oldest 16 no issues pack a light lunch and enjoy lots of roots not bad for $2 per car

This is a pretty trail. I walked this trail with my parents, starting at the visitor’s center and taking woodstock pond trail south, then to the turn north again towards fossil beach, which is called mattaponi trail. It’s a fairly easy walk, perfect for families. Very little change in elevation. In total we walked roughly 2 miles in an hour and a half. After heavy rain last night, there were small puddles, but nothing that is impossible to avoid. Fossil beach is beautiful, we saw a butterfly santuary with a dozen+ butterflies. It was very lightly trafficked, but then again, it was a monday.

Nice mix of technical and some paved good for trail running, hiking, scout adventures, and mountain biking(but sign says no bikes allowed). Lots of roots so you must be fit. Well maintained by a scout troop... I added some distance on some nearby paths. This park requires $2 fee if you park a car. It has great fishing areas and boats to rent etc. The shade was awesome for me since I ran in some summer heat. I’ll be back with kids to boat and do some geocaching!

Great for hiking or rucking. Clearly posted signs with multiple trails.

Nice historical adventure with the family. Snapped a pic with Phocohontas for the a child's memory book.

Nice and well-maintained area. Plenty of benches and protected overhangs. Loops mean you are always near your start point. The roadway in is nice and peaceful. Pro closes at dusk.

Nice trail with good path and scenery.

there is no mountain bike trial. The only bike trial they have is paved.

Description of the trails are accurate. They people who are reviewing, have misread, just like I did. Loops five through nine, are about 2.2 to 2.5 miles, with good elevations, but its loops 5 through 9, as in 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9.

I must have been on the wrong trails because I had to combine trail 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and some of the parking lot to get 2.2 miles. There was some good elevations. I am a runner, so I was running the trails and I didn't see any mountain bikes but I could see how they would want to be on the trails too - just glad they weren't because I was hogging everything. ;) Maybe all trails combined equal 5 miles? I needed to log three today so I was a little disappointed but otherwise, nice wooded trails.

Nice hiking trail. Not long or hard, mostly flat with a lot of bugs. Lots of sea shells to look for on the beach.

I like this loop. It’s pleasant, well-marked, and undulating. It’s not really scenic and it’s almost completely wooded. That’s not bad for me, but i can see how it could be a bit monotonous for some.

Very low impact hike highly recommend the views are amazing.

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!

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.

My wife and I stayed to trail A. Only passed by a couple of bike riders. Trail is easy to follow and was a very enjoyable hike for the day.

Great park loved running on the the difficult bike trail.

Very pretty woods. Single lane road with no bike lane. Had to pull off the side of the road several times to let vehicles pass . If you go, go early so there is less traffic.

Very nice trail and matches description.

This was an awesome trail in an awesome park. Beautiful forest and lake views. The trail was wide and well marked. No getting lost here even without a map. There are lots of tree roots so watch your footing. There were plenty of climbs which I was excited about as I was looking for more of a challenge. And of course it was awesome that the pup got to go swimming. There is a $2 parking fee... just an FYI. There's also lots to do at the park.

We actually went on another trail that formed a loop back towards the start totaling 5 miles. Nice hike through the woods and leads to a huge fallen oak tree which was cool to climb on :) If your up for more mileage consider continuing on Powhatan Forks trail. It has a few more climbs and a portion is near the York river.

This trail is actually 7 miles and it is a true, single-file hiking trail. The trail is dirt and sand with lots of roots. It was easy to follow and there are mile markers every half mile. This is designated as a mountain bike trail so you must yield to riders. After mile 3 there are 10 spots to veer off the trail to the main park path and take a shortcut back to the parking lot.

Short hike with easy elevations just watch for all the tree roots.

Nice short trail for the family and dog friendly. Started off next to a pond and then ventured through the woods until you reach the beach. The beach is pretty and there are lots of shells to be found. Overall, a nice day trip.

Trail C is a great trail with tons of nice big jumps and gap jumps! I say from what I hear because when I went last October I miss judged a jump and went over my handle bars. Suffice to say I had a severe concussion and had around six months of memory loss for a time. Thankfully my buddy managed to get me out and to the hospital! So this is a great ride but wear your helmet! I would have probably died without mine!

Great to run, but watch out for the roots. The view from the lookout is beautiful.

Great place! Could be a bit more organized for rentals but the price is right! Enjoyed canoeing and paddle boarding with the family.

Nice trail with good views of the reservoir. Several low hills make this an interesting walk. Be aware there is a$2 fee to get in the park.

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.
