Wahrani Nature 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.

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. We skipped this (as our second hike) last week as the park was closed due to snow.

If folks want to add 2 miles to this hike, we can drive 7 minutes up the road to West Point. There is a simple hike from the boat ramp, along the river and through this little historic burg.

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…  New Kent is a few minutes away and tastings are $10 pp.  Tastings include a tour!
