Five Forks Battlefield

Sometimes we want to hike in the woods, but don’t want to drive 2+ hours. Sometimes we don’t want to get up early. This is a series of hikes that are not too far and not too close; not too long and not too short. We call them ‘Modest Ambles’.

This is a great hike through a pine forest.  No major climbs.

Also BY POPULAR DEMAND – there is an OPTIONAL opportunity for a private CVT food tour of Petersburg hosted by RiverCity / Petersburg Food Tours. This starts at 2PM and gives us plenty of time after the hike to get ready and get there. Last year’s 7 mile hike took 3 hours

The return time is approximate. If you have plans that require you to be back in Richmond at a specific time, please communicate this prior to carpooling with someone, or consider choosing a different hike.


Highlights include (At a cost of $60 pp separate than the hike trail buck) :

  • Visit 5 restaurants to taste one of their best dishes – enough food to end your tour well-satisfied!
  • Visit an award-winning brewery to sample two of their most popular beers, plus a bite to eat from the wood-fired oven.
  • Learn about Petersburg’s history, see some of the amazing buildings that have survived and thrived after the Civil and Revolutionary Wars, and see how it’s revitalization and restaurant scene is making Petersburg a must-visit in Central Virginia!

We are looking for 10 adventurers to make this happen – you need to sign up at this special CVT link:

The food tour is separate from the hike, AND IS OPTIONAL, and is managed by foodie professionals!

    >> UPDATE <<
    Not enough CVT folks signed up for the PRIVATE food tour.
    The tour organizer is going to convert this to a PUBLIC food tour.
    The amount of available spots are limited.
    The OPTIONAL food tour, after this hike, is still ON.

    For those not yet signed up, you can use the
    private link for a few more days, but if/when it stops working, try the public link on the food tour website
