I was a expecting to walk-run a marathon on a trail starting from Yorktown park. Instead it was all road. That was fine but a little dangerous. 99% of drivers went out of their way to move a little extra toward the center of the road when approaching. It would be nice if there was a nice distinguishable line a foot or two for trekkers because the views the river, the woods and rolling hills gives you everything you want. Plus exactly 13.1 miles from Yorktown in the turnaround you find yourself right in the midst of Colonial Williamsburg, costumed employees in tricornered hats, reconstructed tavern and courthouse, horse poop smell, etc.

This trail was nicely wooded once I got away from the road. The water was beautiful! It was very condensed and windy, though. While it might take 10 steps to go directly from point A to point B, I was going around 4 curves and taking about 50 steps before I got there. I passed other walkers, only to see them 2-3 more times in the same 5 min span.

Went on a ranger led tour, very informative, afterwards we drove to different points of interest on the auto tour and walked in

I really enjoyed this trail. It got out in the woods more than many in the park. This is one of my favorites for a close by trail.

This is another one that we did over three years ago and I forgot to enter it. This is a very pleasant ride.

A really nice walk along the beach.

I did this beautiful walk again today A little cold for swiming, but just right for scenic walking.

Really awesome piece of American History is the battlefield where British General Cornwallis surrendered to General George Washington and the combined American and French forces.
