Chippokes Plantation Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike explores one of the oldest continually operating farms in the United States. Begun in 1619, the 1,400-acre farm, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, contains more than twenty architecturally significant buildings.

You will start at the park visitor center. Walk along the James River beach, then cross College Run. From there, the trail rises to meet the heart of the plantation, where you can explore a working farm, outbuildings, and the mansion. The Farm and Forestry Museum is a must-stop. Check out actual implements of farming days gone by that will hold your fascination."
