Trail Description
About this trail
This is a Virginia State Park, website here:

http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state-parks/pocahontas.shtml

This park is a nicely managed state park similar to Yorktown State Park (also a Virginia State Park).

There are trails for all levels, but none are really that hard. The scenery is typical Eastern Virginia woodland. I have never failed to see deer. Once I saw an American Bald Eagle. This is a good park to learn and to get some exercise. I have gone here with my children since they were 4. The singletrack difficulty is indicated in a fashion similar to ski slopes. The easy trail is the longest. The hardest trail is not that much harder than the easiest.

Q: thinking about traveling from NJ to VA in April for a long weekend of camping. Are these trails something that we could pull our child in one of those bike trailers on ? dont want to make the 4 hr drive with our bikes if we really cant pull her behind them. Any feedback or other parks to camp around VA would be appreciated ! -robertsiantosca

A: Depends on which trail system you ride. There are two trails that were built with hand cyclist in mind and a very smooth, although they are rather short.

Review: Lots of fun. Fairly easy with some obstacles, root and gardens, but nothing really difficult. Great for beginners like me. Some steep hills. Well maintained, and the fire roads and horse trails are also accessible for mountain biking. My only complaint is that the park closes the bike trails for a day or two every time it rains, and we get a lot of rain in here.

Review: Well maintained and a enjoyable ride. I rode Lakeview Trail 1 & 2. It had a few technical spots but I'm also a beginner.

Review: Great for all skill levels, simulates the big mountains just west of richmond with easy long-ish climbs to fun downhills with jumps and great flow. The trails are all ridable by beginners, they may need to hike their bikes once or twice, but overall they'll love the non-steep grade and smooth trails.

Review: The new trails are awesome. Labeled easy but if your trying to work on more dirt jump/pump track skills. Ride them! I was slightly disappointed in Morel Ravine which is labeled black diamond. The ravine crossing are not beginner! But the down tree crossings, which all can be ridden, got a wee bit boring. But yeah I'm going back. Great state park!
