Need to Know

This is a long run. I carried 2 liters of water on the trail, packed a lunch, and had snacks along the way. During the winter months, it is more difficult to get water at the park.

Runner Notes

Excellent trail to run if that's your thing.

Description

The Fendley Station Trail is a 17.38-mile loop trail located near Chesterfield, Virginia, in Pocahontas State Park. The trail is wooded with scenic views of a lake and a creek near the end of the trail. The terrain varies throughout the loop, and there is a creek crossing that is not passable most of the year. This route features a beautiful view of Swift Creek Lake and spillway.

In the case of this run, the parking area I use is near the "powerlines" on Beach Road. If the creek were passable, you could enter the trail and turn left on Fendley and loop all the way around. I would recommend parking on the Courthouse Road parking area closest to the spillway and then have someone drive you to the powerline parking area to begin your run. Otherwise, it's a long way back to your car!

Flora & Fauna

There is a wide variety of birds on this trail and other wildlife.
