Just south of Richmond International Airport, Dorey Park is a model county park. The wellmaintained facilities cater to a range of interests, from T-ball to horseback riding. By combining a stroll around the pond, a brief jaunt into the woods, and a loop of the exercise trail, it’s easy to string together a couple of miles on wide gravel paths. Elongate your hike by venturing onto the singletrack in the southern reaches of the park, near the discgolf course.

Not a bad starter trail for kids. My 5 year old had a good time walking with me. Distance was perfect for him to start out with very small elevation change.

As posted this mtn bike trail is for beginners and fairly short, 2miles. Beware of trucks, one almost ran me over delivering kayaks to summer camp kids. Fairly flat, gravel, dirt and some paved sections. Several off shots for single track which is much more difficult. A couple of off shots which are still beginner level on the southside where you can ride on exposed boulders. The single track trail on the east end is also beginner level and you can ride to the water so beware if it is raining as this river easily floods.
