As far as hikes go, this was a walk. Pretty much flat all the way and paved too. Do you call a long walk around your neighborhood a hike? If not, then you’ll agree that this is a walk. Decent views of course because you...More

This an easy and fairly level trail. It is easy to hike and has some very good views of the peaks and has several access points to the river.

Well paved path with beautiful views make this easy walk a top things to do when visiting the park. It is also short so perfect for a hot day. Still pack lots of water though since no shade if sun is up.

Even if you just hike a little portion of it, it's a very easy path, good for bikes or feet. Provides access to the river for swimming.

This is a very easy paved flat path to walk on. You can get on it by the Visitor Center and head north. It has great views and follows along or near the river. At the north end of it, there is a bus stop...More

This is not really a hike but a walk along the Virginia River. The roads are well paved. There are constantly access to the river. And offers some good views of the mountains. The only downside is that due to the lack of shade on...More
