I hiked the Voorhees Nature Preserve with a friend and will definitely be returning to this beautiful site. Including the walk to and from the parking area, it was a total of ~4.25 miles -- mostly on wide wooded paths. There are couple of short strenuous climbs, and the thick carpet of fallen leaves hid loose fallen limbs and exposed roots, so the trail was a bit challenging. A large portion of the trail is on a bluff that overlooks the Rappahannock River. This trail is truly a hidden gem here in eastern Virginia!
