Lake Powhatan Professional Review and Guide

"The level terrain and varied scenery on this trail make this hike ideal for families with young children. Starting at the Hardtimes Trailhead, the route follows both gravel roads and a singletrack trail to the dam at Lake Powhatan. From the dam, the path leads through a rhododendron tunnel to the beach on the north end of the lake and then to the fishing pier on the opposite shore. Then the route travels on a forest service road through towering hardwood trees back to the parking area."
