Lake Anna State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Set along the shore of Virginia’s most popular impoundment, this hike at Lake Anna State Park explores woods, streams, and Lake Anna, while visiting the site of Glenora Plantation and a pre-lake settler’s homesite before returning to the trailhead. A welltimed visit will also avail ranger-led tours of the park’s gold mines.
What comprises the 2,000 acres of Lake Anna State Park is valuable land, especially as the popularity of Lake Anna continues to grow. Today, the worth of the land is directly
related to its proximity to Lake Anna. Waterfront property can go for big bucks. The original holders of this terrain along the North Anna River, centuries before Lake Anna was dammed, were the Mannahoak Sioux. After seeing tribes to the east being defeated by the English, the Mannahoaks simply fled west to the Ohio River valley, their ancestral lands."
