Nice trail 5 minutes from downtown Richmond. Half of the hike is on a wide gravel path/road used heavily by mountain bikers. Other half is on a dirt path through the woods. The woods section is beautiful. It is hard to imagine you are that close to the city. The hike is easy and fast. When at the northwestern part of the circuit, you can take a path across a small inlet to the 42nd Street Island. When you come out the other side of the path, you will behold beatiful views of the James River (with loads of rocks to lounge on) and a view of the Richmond skyline.
