A couple of weeks ago I was looking for a place to hiking within 30 minutes of Charlottesville and I found Walnut Creek Park. It’s an easy 20 minute drive south of Charlottesville and has lots of nice trails for hiking, running, and mountain biking. It also has a nice beach area and a disc golf course. There are 2 parking areas, one near the entrance for accessing most of the hiking and biking trails and one further down by the beach and disc golf area.

Here is a great trail map, I went for the Wilkins Way trail that was a nice long loop with some moderate hills. I didn’t think was too strenuous, but I ran up the hills to get more of a workout. I didn’t see that many people, but it must get busier in the summer. I’ll┬ádefinitely┬ábe back for more hiking and exploring.

Here are some of the photos I took:
