Cumberland Marsh Preserve & Wahrani Trail

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 new series of hikes that are not too far and not too close; not too long and not too short. We call them ‘Modest Ambles’. Let’s explore these during the winter months and keep in practice.

2 hikes 1 day : The Cumberland Marsh hike is variously stated as a 2.8 or 4.2 mile loop. Either way is 1.5 – 2 hours.  The Wahrani Nature trail is a great stroll in the woods with many switchbacks and loops that we will do 3.4 miles. There is not much in the way of views as you would experience in the mountains, but has some good up and downs.

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.

Since these are shorter hikes let’s combine them with visits to local wineries for tastings and bon vivanterie… Saude Creek is a few minutes away and tastings are $10 pp.
