Need to Know

There are many more segments of trail around the park that are not a park of this loop and cross it. Be sure to have a trail map handy or use the Trail Run Project mobile app to be sure of where you are going.

Obviously it's in a state park, so passes are required. Day use only.

Runner Notes

Smooth, crushed rock makes for an easy trail run.

Description

The Davis Ponds Trail is a loop around the lower section of the Staunton State Park that follows the entrance road and parking lots. There is only 100 ft of elevation change, and it is great for an easy run for one step more difficult than pavement. I was able to run flat foot the whole time. The path is wide, crushed rock the entire way and even in the rain, there was zero mud.

There were TONS of deer along the trail. They seem to hang out all day, and I have seen them every time I go on this trail.

There is an excellent view of Lion's Head from between the two ponds.

Flora & Fauna

Mule deer, hawks, eagles, geese, black squirrels, and ground squirrels can be found here.
