I had planed on spending the day Saturday but it rained all day. Why hike in the rain if you don't have to? So I went today and it was sunny and cool Perfect hiking weather!!! It was so beautiful. The trees had small leaves and the dogwood were in bloom.

Backbone Trail

Really nice trail approx. 2 miles - I think its best to hike not bike we did both. Be mindful that its east to get turned onto another trail when on here as we ended up doing 3 times. They all intersect and loop around each other. The markers can be a bit misleading, so if you want it to be a 5 or even 4 mile just pick up the Dogwood or Majestic when they intersect and you'll increase your mileage plus take advantage of the different terrains.

This is a nice trail just be forewarned it isn't the trail to go if you want quiet and serenity. The noise from Airport Road is obnoxious. Admittedly I did NOT check all trails before going or I would have seen there was a $2.00 parking fee.

This was a nice trail nothing as spectacular as theTaskina's or even Mattaponi but nice. If you like hiking in the woods this will be a treat.
