Wahrani Nature Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"On rainy afternoons, mist enshrouds the fernblanketed hills at Wahrani Nature Park, evoking the Smoky Mountains rather than Tidewater Virginia. Though modest by Appalachian standards, the distinct climbs along this route lead hikers to a sweeping overlook and a pair of Colonial graves.

In 2001 New Kent County assumed jurisdiction over the 138-acre parcel encompassing this longstanding nature trail, making it the first holding of the county’s fledgling parks department. Until recently, this route was alternately referred to as Chesapeake Nature Trail, because Chesapeake Corporation owned the land, or Warreneye Nature Trail, in honor of the 18th-century Warreneye Church that once stood here."
