Beautiful well-maintained trails. Saw two turtles and a flock of turkeys. Very quiet. Some trails were not open so could not see the whole thing. I would suggest fall/winter being the best time to go to avoid bugs

Hiked in late February. Nice trail wide enough for a car to drive on thru a marsh/wooded area. The great part of this trail is all the different kind of birds to see on the trail...osprey, hawks, vultures, bald eagles, cranes, ducks, etc. A half mile of the trail is following the shore of the Potomac River, which is so wide at this point it looks like a lake (only disappointing part to distract from the nice river view is the amount of trash that's washed on the shoreline). Overall, a peaceful, easy walk on a temperate, late winter day...

I came here to walk my dog and was pleasantly surprised how far away from the outside world you feel with being in the middle of the bustling Woodbridge area. In late January, there were still some leaves on the trees and the temperature was low 50s that day, so it felt like a beautiful autumn hike. I've gone three times since and there haven't been more than a couple people on the trail each time. Hidden gem of a hike!

Terrible ticks & flies in the summer, not much shade, and awful amount of debris on trail near the shoreline. This may be better in the cooler months, or for birders, but not for me!

A great hike through a beautifully wooded area that is also rich in history. Highly recommend!

Park was beautiful and well maintained. Had access to sandy beach area. We saw lots of wild life- clams, crabs, fishing cranes, etc. Trail was perfect for our senior dog.

Very easy and level hike with 100% on unpaved roads. I modified the route slightly. From the parking area I took Fox Rd to Deephole Rd to Charlie Rd back to parking. Lots of wildlife. Great long walk along shore of bay.

Leesylvania State Park is a great place to spend a day. Several hiking trails along the Potomac. Pretty easy as well, not much elevation. Beach fronts are nice and the pier is awesome. Great place!

Easy trail with beautiful views of the Potomac. Highly recommended. Many great sandy areas for my dog to go swimming. I did not see any signs requiring dogs to be leashed so I was able to let me lab loose 90% of the trail. Lots of wildlife.

I started my run on Bushey Point Trail and connected it to Powell Creek. The trail gets pretty narrow in some spots which is can be problematic when it's populated.

The trail is easy but popular. If you want to avoid the crowd, come early.

Easy level trail with lots of birds to see from one end to the other. Walked this trail in January 2017 on a slightly foggy day but was still able to see plenty of water fowl. Wide trails all marked well with information and educational materials at the parking area. Peaceful walk.

This walk is wonderful on a beautiful day. As other reviewers have said, there is some information about the trail on signs. There is benches, grills, and a children's play area. Currently much of the area is under construction, but that doesn't prevent you from walking the trail.

The trail is short and wonderful for people with small children or the elderly. I took my dog to test out some of our hiking equipment. It was a wonderful walk.

Please note that there is a fee to park. I think it's about $4.

Nice walk in the woods. Seems like a lot of vertical for the location.

I agree with Shannon that it was a little boring compared to the other trails in the park.

Woods, water, history and watershed. This trail is more into education and less into history. I combined it with Bushy Point Trail for a nice loop.

A nice hike on a nice day. It was too cold for sitting, but perfect for hiking. I loved the bridges and the water views along the Potomac.

I loved the water views. All Virginia State Parks are nice and this one is no exception.

Nice hike. A little nature, a little history and a mostly easy trail.

Great trail for a jog/hike with my dog! The first part is pretty easy for a jog, but it started to get a little muddy (it was raining) so we just hiked. My dog loved it and the stops were really cool!

Loved the trail and especially nature and the bridges. We got off the trail accidentally after coming across the 3rd bridge so use the map to stay on track. There are numerous trails.
