"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."

This trail no longer exists and the only trail to ride bikes on in this park is now a paved trail that runs along the road near the entrance to the park. Do not go here to ride bikes. Park employees say hurricane Katrina destroyed the singletrack in the park. Sounds like bunk to me but regardless there is no singletrack to ride here.

If you are in the mood for a nice walk in the woods, this is a pretty good choice. Trails are wide, well marked and well maintained. Grade is gentle. Views of the creek and river are abundant. We got an up-close view of beaver damage to trees on this hike.
