A very pleasant, absolutely flat walk in the middle of west Virginia Beach. The views around the lake are quite pretty, particularly from the southwest corner of the lake, where you can see most of the park all in one vista. There is now a gravel road between Mt. Trashmore and Mt. Encore, so you can cut across and avoid having to backtrack after visiting the skateboarding arena and children's playground in the northeast corner.
