My husband and I are new to Williamsburg I was delighted to discover this trail. Diverse habitats. Safe. Easy flat walk with a nice verity of trees. I enjoyed reading the placks that line the trail decribing some of the important features and history of the area. A very nice introduction. I could hear woodpeckers, cardinals, robins, red-winged blacke birds.... More

Williamsburg/James City County does a great job of ensuring there are great outdoor spaces, and this trail is no exception. It was recently updated to add bridges over low spots and more interpretive signage to let you know the past and present, right where you're standing. The trail is well-marked and mostly flat, with lots of options for a long... More

This was a delightful path covered by trees part of the way so that it was pleasant even on a hot day. We had wanted to see cardinals while in VA and spotted a number along the way.

Best place in Williamsburg to take a stroll with your loved ones (people or dogs) and enjoy the splendors of nature. The County maintains the trails very well now compared to its first few years and there's always something to see, any season.

This is a very well maintained trail-system with interpretative signs throughout It is mostly flat, has several wooden walkways, and made for a delightful afternoon outside. We were there mid-week, and briefly encountered a school group. Otherwise there were few people on the trails.

Particularly if you are staying out in this part of town (Powatan or Greensprings) this is nicely maintained trail system. The trail is flat and access is good. Even though it is adjacent to a high school and subdivision there was considerable wildlife present. Very good for birding.

I was geocaching, and there are several here. Hiked several of the trails, and they are really great. There are sections for bikes, and where they meet hiking trails they are clearly and obviously marked. Not that you can't hike both, and I did. Beautiful area in the middle of nature - I took a couple dozen photos. Just don't... More
