Waller Mill Park

Waller Mill Park Professional Review and Guide

"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."

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.
