Mountain Biking Pocahontas State Park

****   Add a review
#9 of 300 mountain bike trails in Virginia
#298 in the world

This is a Virginia State Park, website here:


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.

Rider questions

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 !
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.

Q: Is there a trail for three-wheeled handicap bikes
A: Absolutely! The newish Swift Creek trails have about 7 miles of hand cycle-friendly trails. Come check them out.
