Waller Mill Bike Path Professional Reviews and Guides
"Waller Mill Park has enough amenities to rival a day-use state park. The park took a beating in 2003, and the 5-mile mountain-bike trail has yet to reopen. However, you can still choose from paddling, picnicking, and fishing for posthike relaxation.
The first Virginians never saw Waller Mill Reservoir—it was constructed in 1942—but colonists and speculators representing the Virginia Company of London no doubt explored the area. They would have seen the present shore as hilltops overlooking the now-flooded valley of Queen’s Creek, which still drains east from the reservoir to the York River."
--Nathan Lott, 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Richmond: Including Petersburg, Williamsburg, and Fredericksburg (Menasha Ridge Press).
"NOTE: TRAILS.COM HAS BEEN INFORMED THAT THIS TRAIL WAS DAMAGED IN A SEVERE STORM AND IS NO LONGER OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. In addition to Colonial Williamsburg, the Jamestown Settlement, Yorktown Victory Center, Busch Gardens Them Park, and the College of William and Mary, the Virginia Peninsula has some superior singletrack to offer. Only minutes from Colonial Williamsburg and a short bike ride from he College of William and Mary, the sensational Dogwood Trail awaits off-road riders eager to pedal supreme singletrack through hardwoods overlooking Waller Mill Reservoir. Loaded with hills, twisting trails, and inspiring scenery, this 4.5-mile loop contains the most exciting off-road riding in the Tidewater region. Trail Surface: Hilly and wooded singletrack trails."
--Scott Adams, Mountain Biking Virginia (Falcon Guides).
"This ride's general location is 5 miles west of Williamsburg between US 60 and Interstate 64. Scenery includes mature hardwoods surrounding a lake. This is a demanding-and popular-single track in a coastal area where you'd expect flatter, easier riding. This loop repeatedly switches back as it circles around the eastern section of Waller Mill Pond, so it's easy to get a little disoriented in places. Throw in the short but steep ups and downs, and it's hard to take your eyes off the trail long enough to admire the striking hardwoods and lake that surround you. There is little flat terrain as the trail meanders through the woods, so this ride is strictly for intermediate to advanced riders. The riding surface is very narrow and winds its way around holly and oaks, many of whose roots poke their way across your path, adding to the technical challenge of this loop."
--Randy Porter, Mountain Bike! Virginia (Menasha Ridge Press).
