“A wooded trail running along the banks of Lake Maury and the James River.”
— Tom Sumrak
Features: Lake — Wildflowers — Wildlife
There are several roots so don't get too complacent. Porta potties are located at the trailhead.
The trailhead is located at the Mariners Museum parking lot. It is a well marked, singletrack trail that provides some endurance for running in the elements and terrain. There are some really beautiful scenery along the trail, wooden bridges, Muary Lake and a short section along the banks of the James River.
At just about 5 miles, this is a great trail that allows you escape the urban feel of Newport News. Enjoy the scenery!
This trail can get congested on nice days so be prepared. Many walkers and dogs.
Flora & Fauna
You will find Virginia flora and fauna throughout the trails.
