Freedom Park Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"With over 20 miles of singletrack trails for every level of rider, Freedom Park has become a favorite destination for riders from all over the eastern, central, and northern Virginia regions. The trail boasts five (A, B, C, D, and E) clearly marked loops and one easy to follow bunny trail for riders being introduced to the sport. Loop C is a destination trail for many daredevil riders in the region, since it boasts a myriad of TTFs to satisfy the most venturesome riders. Originally built in 2008 by EVMA, loop C has become a premier free ride destination."

"The twists and turns along the park’s interconnected singletrack loops nod to the mountain bikers who first blazed the trail. A predominantly doubletrack multiuse path stays to higher ground and encircles the parking area, but the longer trail explores both the recovering forest uplands and a stream valley that drains west to Colby Swamp.
James City County’s newest park, 675-acre Freedom Park is popular despite minimal amenities. Mountain bikers and trail runners frequent the park after work and on weekends. The singletrack network is hospitable to hikers at all but the most crowded times."
