Rockwood Park Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Rockwood Park, a green oasis in Chesterfield County’s South Side, is the setting for this loop, just one of the many trails in this multipurpose park. Gregory’s Pond is a scenic highlight of the hike. It also bridges intermittent streams and uses boardwalks to span other wetlands.

Rockwood Park, coming in at 163 acres, is the oldest of the Chesterfield County parks. It has undergone many incarnations over time and now is split between developed recreation such as baseball and basketball courts but is still mostly natural woods, where an extensive trail network runs through rolling terrain. This particular loop follows the longest natural surface loop in the park, the Orange Trail. All the park trails add up to over 4 miles of path.

The natural area is bordered on its north and east ends by Falling Creek. Gregory’s Pond is formed by the damming of Falling Creek, making the eastern border a scenic locale where park meets pond. Be apprised the pond is privately owned and no fishing is allowed from Rockwood Park."
