I was very conflicted about how to rate this one. The map is very wrong. It has you walking into heavily wooded area where there aren't any trails. I've lived in this area most my life so I've been here a time or to. It's very easy to make your own map/route so that's exactly what I did. The areas beautiful with a lot of history to see. Plus, it's by the beach. I parked by the beach so I could get the best of both worlds. So I don't recommend using this map but I highly recommend visiting the area.

Enjoyed the scenery at this location, beautiful, boats in the water, sandy beach. It was a slight drizzle so not too many here.

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.
