Pocahontas State Park

Pocahontas State Park Professional Review and Guide

"This ride's general location is south of Richmond near the old Chesterfield Courthouse complex. Scenery includes Beaver Lake and Swift Creek to densely and sparsely wooded rolling terrain. These are good family rides. This designated bike trail takes a wide circle around Beaver Lake on dirt and gravel forest roads.

It's well marked with just a few ups and downs to make things interesting but an easy outing for riders of all ages and ability levels. In addition to Pocahontas's bike trail around the lake are 20 miles of grassy forest roads open to mountain biking. With the park's bike trail brochures you can put together a variety of loops and out-and-back rides of varying length and minimal difficulty; several of these double-tracks lead down to Swift Creek. The latest addition is four miles of single-track that forms a loop that includes a perimeter trail for beginning to intermediate riders with a very technical inner trail section designed for expert riders."
