An interesting trail within Chickasabogue Park, the Cemetery Trail is used by both hikers and cyclists, with hikers heading in one direction, cyclists the other. The directions are reversed each month. The trail is ideally located for family hiking, with plenty to do at the park, and it provides easy trekking for young hikers. Trail Surface: Dirt and sand path; gravel in washout-prone areas.

I rate this trail a three as it is not clearly marked at times and can be confusing. Also it is very flat and has little scenery, other than the fairly consistent pine forest. It is a great place to take the Cub Scouts out for their first hike, since it is a short one with several places to exit the trail. Last time I was out, we had to bushwhack around fallen trees that have not been removed for some time. There are other trails in the park that are a bit more interesting. The trails are more suited to light mountain biking.

This is a very good trail through the piney woods and creek areas of the park. It is not very difficult but it gets very hot from May to September. Watch for snakes if you come in the summer. This is a good trail for those who are working up to hiking longer and more difficult trails.
